Wilmington, NC – Cape Fear Community College’s Humanities and Fine Arts Department is pleased to announce that an exhibition of the 2020 Student Art Show will be featured online. The virtual exhibit is the first of its kind for CFCC.

Each year, students’ work is presented at the Wilma W. Daniels Gallery and reviewed by an independent juror. This year, the event was reimagined due to COVID-19 social distancing regulations.

“We’re excited to be able to present our students’ work, despite being away from campus,” said Brandon Guthrie, CFCC’s Dean for Humanities and Fine Arts. “We’re all finding new ways to accomplish our daily tasks, but this exhibit recognizes countless hours of hard work by our students. I’m happy we are able to celebrate their efforts in this unique way.”

“It is an understatement to say this year is unique and has posed challenges to the 2020 CFCC Student Show. For students and faculty, the show is a celebration of the artwork students have made during their time at CFCC,” said Abby Spangel Perry, CFCC Art Instructor and Gallery Coordinator. “Every year, we have an awards reception where students come together with their friends and families to celebrate one another, view the show, and receive awards. This year, we knew the show could not happen in the traditional format, but we still wanted to honor our hard-working, creative students. The department decided to shift to an online format. Working with Bob Unchester, Curator at the Cameron Art Museum, we were able to develop the show virtually.”

“It was a great pleasure and honor to be a part of the jurying process for the Cape Fear Community College art show,” said Unchester, juror for this year’s exhibit. “It was an enormous challenge to select works for inclusion in this exhibition, as all of the submitted pieces were of impressive caliber. I truly hope and that all the artists involved will continue to create original work and pursue the artistic field. The Cameron Art Museum has long valued a collaborative and collegial relationship with CFCC, and we look forward to continuing to work together in the future.”
