recession proof


April 21 - May 24, 2008
Opening reception: Thursday, April 24, from 6:00-8:00 p.m.
Artists’ walk-through: Thursday, May 1, from 7:00-8:30 p.m.

Chaffey College and the Wignall Museum are pleased to present the Student Invitational 2008: Recession Proof, an annual exhibition of work by students that have excelled in the art program. Artists are selected to participate in the exhibition and accompanying honors class by a jury of full-time faculty from the Art, Photography, and Digital Media departments. In its 31st year, this annual exhibition reflects the creative professionalism and diversity of the visual arts program at Chaffey College.

The students selected to participate in the Student Invitational create completely new bodies of work specifically for the exhibition. They also participate in a unique, honors seminar course where---with the support and assistance from the art faculty, gallery curators and staff---the students intensely explore their own artistic processes. In addition, they also participate in many aspects of exhibition development and production. The impressive result is Student Invitational 2008: Recession Proof – an exhibition of exciting and innovative artwork that engages the viewer at the intersection of personal obsession and social critique. The exhibition will feature the work of Esther Bedolla, Meagan Boyd, Jodie Cavalier, Douglas Couch, Allison Krumwiede, Marisol Lazaro, Vincente Ornelas, Roberto Ramirez, Erik Recendez, Rena Rezentes and Eva Rizzo.

The exhibition, reception and artists’ talk are free and open to the public.
