Those who never have made it out to Pellissippi State Community College for an art exhibition have a unique opportunity to view a variety of works from the comfort of their own home this year.


Pellissippi State is offering its Annual Juried Student Art Exhibition online through May 3. This is the first time the exhibition has been held virtually.

Art Professor Jennifer Brickey built the exhibition in Microsoft Sway, which allows viewers to see the student works as a slideshow, with the ability to choose whether the works stay on screen anywhere between 3 and 60 seconds. Viewers also can take the exhibit off loop and click through the works manually.

The options are visible to viewers by moving the computer’s cursor or mouse to the lower righthand corner of the screen.

“This annual exhibition exemplifies the hard work of both the students and the art faculty,” Brickey said. “This exhibition is even more unique because it demonstrates the hard work and perseverance of both our art faculty and students during one of the most trying years. I am very proud of this exhibition. It is truly a testament to the strength of the art department.”

Any Pellissippi State student who had an art class during the last two years was welcome to apply for the exhibition. The works were chosen this year by Pellissippi State’s art faculty: Brickey, Professor Jeff Lockett, Associate Professor Caroline Covingtonand Professor Herb Rieth.

Thirty-one works were selected for this year’s exhibition. Rebeca Ortiz was awarded Best in Show and $500 for her charcoal drawing Macabre Royalty. As is the tradition, the winning artwork was purchased by Pellissippi State for its permanent collection that is displayed on campus.
