Center for the Arts’ Adult Student Show Winners

Submitted Photos | 1st Place, “Harriet Smoking Circa 1938” by Judith O’Brien.

Marco Island Center for the Arts invites the public to view the vibrant and varied art work created by the Art Center’s students during the “Adult Student Show” on exhibit through April 17, 2019, Monday through Friday, from 9 AM to 4 PM.

This multimedia exhibition showcases skills the students have learned from the Art Center’s marvelous teaching artists and provides them the opportunity to present their work in a public gallery, a milestone in any artist’s career.  The exhibition will be on display in the Lauritzen & Rush Galleries.

In the La Petite Galerie, “Teen Noir” is being presented by the Marco Island Academy students. Rob Eder’s photography students were asked to create pictures as if they were “stills” from the 1950’s Film Noir movies.

The “Adult Student Show” has been judged by Joanne Poluch, a Canadian art consultant and dealer. She is also the manager of the University of Guelph Art Gallery. The following are the winners:

  • 1st Place, “Harriet Smoking Circa 1938” by Judith O’Brien (instructor Diane Reed Eiler)
  • 2nd Place, “Happy Vendors” by Wanda Coady (instructor Joan Scherer)
  • 3rd Place, “Blooms on the Front Porch” by Hope Hanley (instructor Diane Reed Eiler)
  • Honorable Mention, “Florida Peaches” by Bettye Kight (instructor Phyllis Pransky)
  • Honorable Mention, “Josh’s Sea Otter” by Steve Roberts (instructor Jerry Leeman)

All the artwork is for sale in the Lauritzen & Rush galleries, unless otherwise noted.

Marco Island Center for the Arts offers a diverse array of classes for all ages. The schedule of our very popular Summer Youth Art Classes is being released. The Art Center offers artmaking for adult students in the following areas: acrylic, clay, drawing, oil, pastels, stone, watercolor and more.
