Art works by three Farmington area residents are on display as part of the Current Student Works Competition at the Birmingham Bloomfield Art Center (BBAC), a regional non-profit art center
Farmington resident Virgil Taylor and Shelly Denes and Jodi Galperin of Farmington Hills all have pieces of jewelry in the exhibit, which is on display through March 4 at 1516 S. Cranbrook Rd. in Birmingham.
Juried by artist Claudia Shepard, a notable and respected painter with a long history in the Detroit art scene, this year’s exhibition features painting, drawing, mixed media, ceramics, jewelry/metals, fiber and more from BBAC adult students. The awarded student artists share in cash prizes, tuition certificates and gift cards for art supplies totaling more than $3,000.
“The Current Student Works exhibition is a wonderful, annual celebration of our students and instructors, their talents and artistic achievements,” Annie VanGelderen, BBAC president and CEO, said in a press release. “We hope visitors will be moved by what they see, and possibly feel encouraged to start exploring their own artistic pursuits.”
