On View in AFA Gallery!

Not Too Little Not Too Late
Featured work from 2020 & 2021 Photography + Media Juried Shows
AFA Gallery at Alexandria Campus
Sep20 – Oct 14, 2021

Each year students in Photography + Media classes may submit works in photography, video, and multimedia for a spring exhibit juried by someone from outside the NVCC community. The work must have been produced during the preceding year though not necessarily for a class.

And each year, from that juried show, some students are selected to receive Juror’s Awards and a Faculty Award. The awards are for excellence in overall work, not prizes for a particular image. The Faculty Award winner’s work is used in promotional materials for the next year’s Juried Student Show.

Normally the works, in print or multimedia, are displayed in our AFA Gallery. In the spring of 2020 and 2021, this was not possible. While virtual exhibits can be very good, they do not have quite the same presence as works in print or larger displays, so we are very pleased to present the works by the Juror’s and Faculty Award recipients in those two years now, neither too late nor too little.

The 2021 Alexandria Juried Student Show is now on view online! 
“Artworks selected for this exhibition embraced, with unabashed personality, complicated personal and societal experiences of the past year. Humor, quirkiness, and contemplation are traits that dominated my selection process. The student juried exhibition offers a panoramic view of the complicated nature of life within the past year of which everyone was forced to cope.”
Antonio McAfee, Juror

Have You Seen?

At the end of the Fall 2020 semester, we put together a gallery celebrating the work of our students. This virtual gallery presents images made by more than 100 students for their final projects, from 11 sections of six Photo + Media classes, from introductory to advanced and across two campuses.
