The Art Department of ABAC will host a community show in the Bowen Art Gallery at 4 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 19.
All forms of art will be displayed and admission is free. Works range from paintings, drawings, sculptures, ceramics and photographs to printed digital art.
The event is to help young artists gain confidence in their work and experience the feel of showing their work to the world. The event also helps bring awareness of the program and show how valuable it is.
"The art program is to help students gain a new perspective about life and of the world itself. And if possible, help the students find themselves as they make their own journey," said Donna Hatcher, professor of art.
"In todays world, filled with technology and all this chaos and what not, it is really important that art is preserved and the only way to do that is to let those who are willing, let go and enjoy life to its fullest and that's art. expression of one's self. That's why we are doing this program."
Any student, faculty, or member of the community is welcome to show their work in the show. This is one of the basic principles that the program was built upon. "Art is meant to be enjoy by everyone, hence nature." -- Unknown.
