The 51st annual Lorain County Region Scholastic Art Exhibit presented by Nordson Corporation is set for Monday, Jan. 14 through Friday, Feb. 22 at Lorain County Community College’s Beth K. Stocker Art Gallery.

This exhibit draws from public, parochial, and private middle and high schools from Lorain, Erie, and Huron counties. Art teachers enter more than 1,400 original works of art from student artists each year. Professional judges then choose up to 800 pieces of art that are hung salon-style in the Beth K. Stocker Art Gallery in the College’s Stocker Art Center.

“This exhibit is one of our most popular of the year, amazing visitors with the diversity and talent of student artists in our region,” said Beth Bryan, Stocker Arts Center operations coordinator.

The categories of art include architecture, ceramics, glass, comic art, design, digital, drawing, illustration, editorial cartoon, fashion design, jewelry, mixed media, painting, photography, printmaking, sculpture, video game design, and Senior portfolio.

“We are extremely thankful to Nordson Corporation for its continuing support and sponsorship of this exceptional program and exhibit,” Bryan said.

Because of the overwhelming popularity of this exhibit, the Beth K. Stocker Art Gallery is open extended hours through the run of the exhibit:

• Mondays through Fridays from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
• Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 4-6:30 p.m.
