An exhibit of student art is set to go on display Monday at Johnston Community College’s Frank Creech Gallery.
The artwork is a collaboration among students from several Johnston County schools. Students were asked to use doors as a metaphor for art that focused on transitions.
Students used the doors to represent the past, the present and their idea of the future. They also met periodically to discuss their work and how to apply a visual representation of their ideas to the doors.
The project is the brainchild of Benson Middle School art teacher Magen Pike. She worked with colleagues from West View Elementary, Princeton Elementary, South Johnston High School, Corinth Holders High School and Smithfield Middle School to bring the project to fruition.
The exhibit opening will be held Monday from 5 to 8 p.m. at the Frank Creech Gallery on the main campus of Johnston Community College, 245 College Road, Smithfield. The exhibit is free and open to the public.
