Chaffey College and the Wignall Museum/Gallery are pleased to announce the 27th Annual StudentInvitational Exhibition, TEN, a juried group exhibition featuring recent works by 10 Chaffey College student artists. In this competitive program, all Chaffey College students who have recently taken an art class are encouraged to apply. All full-time art and photo faculty jury the submissions and they continue to mentor and advise students through the creative process. Jan Raithel, Project Coordinator, leads the class in weekly seminars and critiques with support and assistance from the assistant curator and gallery staff. In this unique opportunity the participants are able to experience the life of an exhibiting artist, including the trials and tribulations. They’re included in all phases of the exhibition process such as but not limited to the exhibition announcement design progression, installation design, writing artist statements, construction of the gallery for the exhibition, title wall design, and other steps in the exhibition process. The gallery becomes a learning lab to further educate Chaffey’s art students.


This year we’re pleased to announce the following ten participants:

Mary Beierle, ceramics
Buffy Cutler, graphic design
Patrick Gallagher, graphic design
Christopher Harris, multimedia
Karmina Mercado, photography
Ryan Perez, photography
