BARSTOW — The public is invited to enjoy live music and light refreshments on Wednesday at Barstow Community College’s Spring Art Show.

The opening reception will be held at 5:30 p.m. in the lobby of the Learning Resource Center on campus to showcase students' original works of art. There is no admission charge.

“This will be an amazing show, with a lot more exhibits than we have had in the past,” said Lewis Goldstein, professor of art at the college.

Student works of art will include original drawings, paintings, photographs, ceramics and other fine art objects.

Lou-Anne Presley, Terrence McCorkle and Dale Jensen created a notable exhibit featuring a copper forest of trees, and McCorckle and Kim Lytle will have welded pieces on display.

The school’s design class will have a 3-foot-by-4-foot project describing the design principle of unity, according to Goldstein, and Linda Snively, Lorraine Bowen, Mary Shearer and Thrim Paulson will have their pottery on exhibit, as well as all the other ceramic students.

The artwork will be on display until May 9.

“We try to represent all students, whether it’s great work or beginners,” Goldstein said. “We want students to see their work presented in a public forum because that’s inspiring.”

The college invites those interested in studying the arts to sign up for a class. Several art and photography classes are being offered online and on campus for the summer. Registration is now open at the college for classes starting June 5.

Barstow Community College is located at 2700 Barstow Road, Barstow. For more information, contact Prof. Goldstein at 760-252-2411, ext. 7246.
