2019-20 Art Exhibits

NHCC Student Art Exhibition

April-May, 2020

In an effort to hold onto our annual ceremony, the Joseph Gazzuolo Fine Arts Gallery will present our 2020 NHCC Student Art Show online. Every year, our community joins together to celebrate the artworks made by our talented students. As one of our largest and most anticipated gallery productions of the year, it is with great urgency and necessity that the show continues. At a time when social distancing is keeping us apart, this is one opportunity for us to feel connected.  However, the importance of this show goes beyond this. For many of our students, this is their first step in preparing themselves for a lifetime of creating and developing their own creative practice. Many of our students use this annual event to prepare a portfolio of work to enter the art market, pursue employment, or to pursue their bachelor's degree. Whether we're close together or keeping others safe through distance, we still need to celebrate and share our common values as a community.
