Bay College is excited to announce the reception for the Student Art Exhibition, which celebrates the success of our art students at Bay College! We look forward to this exhibition at the end of each semester; their work will be displayed in the Besse Gallery from December 6 through January 2024. The Opening Reception and Awards Ceremony is on Thursday, December 7 at 2:00 pm ET - this will be an opportunity to meet the artists and engage in conversations about their works.

This exhibition represents the culmination of a semester of work for these students, which will feature drawings, videos, sculpture, and performance art. By using a variety of media to produce their compelling works, the students are learning to create unified compositions that effectively communicate their ideas and expertise. The exhibited works originate from the following art classes: Digital Cinema I & II, Intro to Art Design, Performance and Installation, and Drawing I & II. This is a juried art show in which one artwork per course will be purchased and become part of Bay’s Permanent Art Collection; 2nd and 3rd place winners will receive monetary awards.

Join us in the celebration of our talented students! We invite friends, family, and the community to celebrate their success.

The Art and Design program at Bay College is designed to provide students with a strong general education background as well as concentration in art and design. This program is designed for students who wish to transfer to a four-year college or university. Students should work closely with an academic advisor to select courses needed for their intended major at the four-year institution they plan to attend. The school, through the Besse Gallery and Hartwig Gallery, also provides students with exposure to exhibitions, visiting artists, and artist talk’s exemplifying the cultural breadth of the visual arts from national, regional, and local sources, including the College's permanent art collection. Studios include professional facilities and equipment in Ceramics, Photography, Digital Cinema, Graphic Arts, Painting, Drawing, Sculpture.
