Biennial Faculty Exhibition 2023

The Biennial Faculty Exhibition highlights the creative work of our faculty to explore their recent projects and artistic research. Antelope Valley College is a vibrant center of art and design which educates and prepares students to be innovative, creative problem solvers, critical thinkers and globally engaged citizens. Faculty practice embraces traditional and contemporary approaches toward materials, forms, techniques, and ideas. By presenting the work of our faculty, we provide students, prospective students, and community members a look at the talent and resources within the visual and digital art programs at AVC. 

Friends of the Gallery Exhibition 2023

The Friends of the Gallery exhibition incorporates a diverse variety of media, from oil on canvas and ceramics to video and digital media. It represents artists of all ages and backgrounds to cultivate a dynamic exchange between students, local artists, and our friends in the broader community. To participate, please bring one ready to hang artwork to the Art Gallery during our drop-off date where you can complete a membership form, and loan agreement. All media are accepted. We encourage work completed within the last two years and not previously shown in the gallery.

The exhibition celebrates the wide range of visual art disciplines available at AVC, and the diverse media and expressive content our student artists are creating during their time on campus.
