The SUNY Westchester Peekskill Center for the Digital Arts Gallery is presenting a Student Showcase on view from February 2 through April 26, 2024. The opening reception will be on Thursday, February 22, 2024, from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm, the public is welcome.
The Student Showcase exhibition is a group show dedicated to the work and efforts of current credit and non-credit students including our alumni who make the arts at the Center for the Digital Arts possible. The gallery will showcase students from across the curriculum who take courses and programs such as Art & Design A.S., Digital Filmmaking A.A.S., ITECH A.A.S., non-credit Workforce Development Certificates, Adobe Certification, and Community Arts. This showcase will provide insight into our offerings and the curriculum that supports them. It’s great to see such a dynamic approach to education and artmaking. This event promises to be an enriching experience for all attendees.
Today’s students are diverse and learn in a myriad of ways including in-person, remote, and HyFlex. These flexible modalities support the increasing demands that our students face in a post covid society. As artists face a complex world with increasing challenges, they also engage with emergent technologies that can amplify their creativity and provide both options and innovation in making. It will be exciting to see what their work looks like now after the pandemic and all that we have learned together. This event is an opportunity to witness the diverse range of artwork created by students and alumni, and to see how emergent technologies have influence their creative processes. It’s especially significant as the Center for the Digital Arts celebrates its 30th Anniversary.
During the Thursday, February 22, 2024 reception, student artists will receive juried awards.
Awards will be given in four categories: 3D, Illustration and 2D Animation, Digital Photography, and Fine Arts. This year’s jurors include faculty members: Joseph Thomas, 3D; Emmanuel Jaquez Reyes; Illustration and 2D Animation; Gerry Katzban, Digital Photography; and Laurel Shute, Fine Arts. There will also be four levels of awards given: First, second, third, and honorable mention. Student awardees of first, second, or third place will receive Amazon gift cards.
