Rocklin--The Sierra College Ridley Gallery presents the "16th Annual Juried Student Exhibition", including a variety of works from our best and brightest student artists.

Selected works will include drawing, painting, ceramics, printmaking, digital media, photography (both digital and traditional), sculpture, graphic design, jewelry, metal, woodworking, and mixed media. This year's exhibition is juried by Beth Jones and Lynda Jolley, owners of JayJay Fine Arts in Sacramento.

 This exhibition is a fantastic opportunity for students to get a taste of professional exhibition practices and procedures, to gain exposure and build their exhibition resumes, and have the chance at winning cash prizes and awards. Last year's award winner's included Melba Browne, Larisa Postelnyak, Malayna Galligan, and Heather Curtice, among others. This year's awards are generously provided by the Sierra College Patrons Club, the Friends of the Library, Utrecht Art Supplies, Systech Displays, and the Associated Students of Sierra College.

 A reception, awards ceremony, and gallery talk for this exhibition will be held on Wednesday, April 24 from 5-7pm.
