Student Art Show Awards

The winners of the Reynolds Student Art Show were recently announced at an awards reception in the Conference Center Gallery of the Workforce Development and Conference Center on the Parham Road Campus.

On display during the month of April, the exhibition featured over 70 pieces including paintings, drawings, digital media, mixed media and photographs.

“Community colleges house a rich diversity of students,” noted Reynolds President
Dr. Gary L. Rhodes. “Art provides a unique universal language.”

On display throughout the college, the Reynolds Art Collection currently consists of nearly 400 pieces. These works are strategically placed throughout the three campuses engaging students, faculty, staff and guests. Featuring work by our students and faculty, as well as acclaimed painters, sculptors and visionaries, including John Bryan, Wolfgang Jasper, Dr. Baxter Perkinson and Marilyn West, faculty are also often found incorporating these works in their classroom pedagogy.
