Examples of Student Success in Art 2002

Student Art Exhibitions 2002

The Mentor/Mente Exhibition at California State University, Los Angeles, included work of both faculty and students from area community colleges. Assistant Professors, Barbara Kerwin, Lucy Griesbach and Deborah Paulsen paired up with a few of their most creative students Alex Garcia, Brian Gates, and Ira Hayes Terrones to present a variety of powerful work ranging from painting and digital media, to interactive video and installation.

The 8th All California Community College Exhibition at Riverside Community College included selected acrylic and gouache paintings by students Terry Wilson, Diana Contreas and Rashaun Kartak. Competing with students all over the state Diana Contreas received $200.00 for winning First Place with her humorous gouache piece which will be featured on the announcement card for next year’s show.
