“The 2013 PC Student Art Shows reflected the creativity and diverse interests of Peninsula College students, which are made visual through varied styles, formats, and mediums,” said P.C. associate art professor Michael Paul Miller.

“What remains constant is the individual emotional and/or spiritual connection that fine art has always created between artist and viewer. This human connection persists across time, schools, styles, movements, and theories, making it an essential part of visual experience,” Miller added.
