The Firehouse Art Center is proud to present the sixth annual juried student show from Front Range Community College’s Boulder County Campus in Longmont. The show is a continuation of an academic goal set by John Cross, Lead Faculty for the art program, and the Firehouse’s commitment to educational and professional opportunities for emerging artists and students. Students experience the challenges and joys of presenting their work professionally, from documenting their pieces to professional framing.

This year promises to be very exciting as our program has returned to all in-person classes in the art studios on campus. We are also excited to include Multi-Media Graphic Design as one of the categories for the first time!

The show is a competitive entry open to all art students from Spring 2022, Summer 2022, and the current semester. Prizes are arranged in categories: 2D Design, 3D Design, Drawing, Painting, and Graphic Design. There will also be a Juror’s Choice award and a VP Purchase award, in which the college purchases work for its permanent collection.

“I am extremely proud of the work our instructors put into their classes and the artwork the students produce as a result of their experience in the studios. The hard work and dedication our students pour into their work shows in the high quality of the art they produce.” – John Cross

This year the juror is Clara Nulty.
