Thanks to artspace gallery for responding to the COVID-19 crisis and working to realize the 2020 NCECA Student Juried Exhibition online.
A video of the works included in the exhibition is NOW available for viewing on the artspace Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/artspace.richmond/videos/160508652003081/
Visit https://artspacerva.square.site/ to purchase works.
Overall, the quality of work submitted this year provided a challenge, as jurors Salvador Jiménez-Flores and Virginia Scotchie narrowed down over 900 images to pieces they both believe best represented the way students are thinking and making across the continent. All the applicants, whether in the exhibition this year or not, deserve recognition. Thank you all for your research and time put into developing your pieces, as it is your work that will carry our field into the future. We encourage you to continue showing exactly the kind of makers, thinkers, and innovators you all are.
