CARNEYS POINT TWP. — After Salem Community College’s latest art exhibition “Identity: An Exhibition” students Skyler Amburg and Chloe Welch were honored for their work.

In all, 31 students from the Portfolio and Professional Practice course were featured in the Michael S. Cettei Memorial Library.  The exhibit was organized by Assistant Professor Visual and Performing Arts Jenna Lucente.

The students’ work was juried by SCC Distinguished Alumnus and Artist-in-Residence Paul Stankard and Glass Education Administrator Kristin Deady.  

“I commend Professor Lucente for challenging students to make their work personal,” stated Stankard during a closing reception & celebration.

First-place winner Skyler Amburg created a kiln-cased glass mask surrounded with a fall-themed arrangement. 

“I am showing my past as well as my future with this piece. Ultimately, I am showing myself…” stated Amburg. “When fall time comes, I am filled with joy because it is [this time of the year] when I feel like my real self and can take the mask off that I hide behind in order to be myself. “

Welch’s painting received honorable mention.  “My artwork shows what inspires me as an artist,” Welch continued,  “I like cute subjects, but also dark. I like my work to contrast whether in color or subject matter.”
