NW-SCC students to showcase their art at Tennessee Valley Museum of Art

Northwest-Shoals Community College will have seven art students showcase their art May 23-June 30 as part of a new exhibit at the Tennessee Valley Museum of Art, located in downtown Tuscumbia next to Helen Keller’s birthplace, Ivy Green.

The art that will be on display was created by NW-SCC students Nayely Mojica, Coby Fuller, Daniel Galvez, Ismael Lopez, Emma Cole, Martha Lee and Amanda Jacobs.

“I hope our art helps people realize how much the Northwest-Shoals art department impacts us (students) and the community,” said Mojica, a resident of Russellville. “I have been given the opportunity to proudly share these new pieces that I didn’t think I had the courage or skill to create. The art pieces I selected are the ones I worked hardest on and, more importantly, had the most fun making.”

According to NW-SCC art instructor Zack Underwood, the exhibit will be running alongside another exhibit, that of painter, Lori Putnam.

“It is really exciting for our students to have their art displayed alongside two well-known artists,” said Underwood. “The pieces created by our students were created this spring. It will be a show of paintings and drawings.”

A special reception will be held at the museum on Friday, May 26, to meet the artists. It will be from 2-4:00 p.m. There is no charge to attend.
