SPRINGFIELD — Lincoln Land Community College students Nathan Atchison of Taylorville and Skyler Voss of Chatham will have their artwork featured in “Varsity Art XXVI,” a multi-media exhibition featuring original artwork by regional artists from Missouri and Illinois. The show will be presented in the Art Saint Louis Gallery in downtown St. Louis from March 4-31.
"Both of this year’s featured students are in Thom Whalen’s Silkscreen class. Skyler and Nathan continuously produce work of the highest quality, and both of their pieces were specially made for this exhibition,” says Adam Watkins, dean of LLCC Arts and Communication. “They present an outstanding example of the high-quality work in art and design that the students of LLCC produce under a team of magnificent faculty.”
“Varsity Art XXVI” presents 44 works of art in a variety of media by undergraduate- and graduate-level art students of all ages, representing 23 St. Louis regional colleges and universities. It is a collaboration between Art Saint Louis and the participating collegiate institutions, their art faculty and students.
Art Saint Louis is free and open to the public. Hours are Mondays through Fridays, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturdays, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
LLCC offers an associate of fine arts degree in studio art, associate of art degrees in digital media design and art, and an associate of applied science degree in graphic design.
