Current Exhibition:
"JCC's Juried Student Art & Design Exhibition"

April 22 through May 12, 2022
Opening Reception and Awards Ceremony - April 22, 6:30-8 p.m.

Each year the Weeks Gallery presents the JCC Juried Student Art and Design Exhibition. This is a professionally juried exhibition, featuring works from all JCC campuses and includes painting, drawing and prints, photography, sculpture, ceramics, and digital media. Any student that has taken an art class at JCC has a unique opportunity to have their work professionally juried, installed, and exhibited in the Weeks Gallery. The gallery also hosts an opening reception and awards ceremony for the exhibition.

The JCC Juried Student Art and Design Exhibition provides a valuable learning experience by modeling professionally juried exhibitions and teaching students about the process of preparing, editing and submitting work for exhibition.

This year’s juror, Claire Sherwood will be on the Jamestown campus April 18-26 as part of our “Art + STEM = STEAM” residency. JCC’s 3D Design and Welding students will take an active part in the residency as Sherwood produces new sculptural work on location.

Claire received her MFA from the University of Maryland as a David C. Driskell fellowship recipient. Her work has been exhibited extensively throughout the United States in venues such as, the U.S. Smithsonian National Botanic Garden, the Corcoran Museum of Art, Delaware Center for the Contemporary Arts, Cornish College in Seattle, WA, Grounds for Sculpture, in Hamilton, NJ and numerous galleries, museums and colleges in upstate NY and the New England region. She has received numerous awards and grants, including, the New York State Council on the Arts Individual Artist Grant, New York State Strategic Opportunity Stipend, Elizabeth Murray Residency Grant, Southeast College Art Association Award of Distinction, Ohio River Border Initiative Grant and the International Sculpture Center/ Sculpture Magazine: Outstanding Student Achievement in Contemporary Sculpture.
