Helen S. Smith Gallery
Dates: Now through 6/28/2021
This year’s Virtual Student Exhibition at Green River College’s Helen S. Smith Gallery provides a special opportunity set aside for GRC’s art students to find their footing as exhibiting artists as many prepare to transfer to art schools in the fall or gain confidence to continue with us to further develop a strong portfolio. We are exceptionally proud of the work they do and are excited to present a snapshot, conceptually, of this year’s student experience. The student exhibition heralds as the annual crowning achievement for Green River art students. For many, it is a first-time exhibition of their work, an opportunity to make their voices heard, a method of self-expression and a moment of pride.
The Helen S. Smith Gallery on Green River College’s main campus was named in honor of the college Foundation’s first President. In addition to being one of the college’s founding members, she was known as a strong advocate for the arts in the community. The Helen S. Smith Gallery is an academic resource for the Green River campus and regional art community. Now 50 years and counting, the gallery continues to carry on her legacy as an academic resource to Green River College by presenting compelling and innovative exhibitions featuring emerging and established Northwest Artists throughout the year. The gallery also highlights works by Green River student artists twice annually.
Due to pandemic restrictions, this exhibition will be virtual.
