ALPENA — Artwork that Alpena Community College Fine Arts students completed over the course of the fall semester will be on display Friday for the public to view.

Visit the Joynton Fine Arts Center at the college for An Evening of the Arts from 7 to 9 p.m. on Friday to view the artwork. The free event takes place on the last Friday of the fall and spring semesters.

“This is a semester tradition where the community tends to come together and support the program quite extensively,” said Brian Schorn, adjunct faculty for the college.

The college’s photography, sculpture, painting, drawing, and computer generated design classes will all be represented at the event, Schorn said. Artwork on display is a variety of photography, sculptures, paintings, drawings, and two-dimensional art.

Schorn said the show will feature concrete sculptures that students in his sculpture class created.

“There will be a lot of photographs and a lot of really amazing digital artwork in a large scale,” he said. “They’re huge prints that are really quite amazing.”

The most important thing about the event, Schorn said, is the students seeing their artwork in an exhibition setting.

“With family and friends coming, it becomes a really amazing opportunity for the students to be able to showcase their work,” he said.

Schorn said the event gives students a time to feel good about their work.

“It’s high-quality work and a great opportunity to essentially just support those students and congratulate them on the great job that they did over the semester.”
