Time Passes Away by Terry Smith

CHESTER and MIDLOTHIAN, Va. – Personal, thought-provoking, colorful, dramatic and imaginative – these are just some of the words that come to mind when walking among the eclectic mix of artwork that makes up the 2013 Juried Student Art Show at John Tyler Community College. The show features work in mediums such as oils, charcoal, photography, ceramics, wood, cardboard and paper and puts the many talents of the College’s art students on exhibit. “It’s amazing to see the increase in quality and variety of our students’ artwork year after year as our Visual Arts Program expands,” says Colin Ferguson, professor of art at John Tyler Community College. “I’m always surprised how they continue to top themselves with more challenging, creative, thought-provoking and well-crafted pieces every semester.”  More than 90 pieces of art make up this year’s exhibit, which was juried by Michael Gettings, artist and Chesterfield County Public Schools visual arts instructional specialist. During an opening reception on March 29, 2013, Gettings announced the award winners. The winners are as follows (zip codes are in parentheses):
