The 54th annual Lorain County Region Scholastic Art Exhibit sponsored by Nordson Corporation will open Monday, Jan. 10 and run through Friday, March 11 at Lorain County Community College’s Beth K. Stocker Art Gallery.

This exhibit draws from public, parochial, and private middle, high schools and homeschoolers from Lorain, Erie, and Huron counties. Art teachers enter more than 1,200 original works of art from student artists each year. Professional judges then choose more than 500 pieces of art that are hung salon-style in the Beth K. Stocker Art Gallery in the College’s Stocker Art Center.

“Every year I am delighted to see the shift in topics, current events, art styles, that the students address plus new and different art mediums they utilize. This exhibit is 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 and art gallery coordinator. “It makes a wonderful connection between our local schools and the opportunities student artists can get here at LCCC and the Stocker Arts Center.”

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.
