Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College, Jefferson Davis campus, is finishing its school year with its annual student art exhibition and competition. Awards will be given in the categories of design, drawing, painting, ceramics and computer art.
“This has been a fantastic school year,” said Cecily Cummings, the school’s 2-D arts instructor and gallery manager. “The students have been very productive, creative and hardworking, and the quality and variety of works in the exhibit are testaments to this.”
Among the students participating is Trinh Nguyen, a native of Vung Tau, Vietnam, who relocated to Biloxi in 2010.
Though she struggled with the language barrier and cultural differences upon her move, she used art to communicate with her friends and teachers. Her artistic ability has awarded Nguyen a few scholarships to continue her education.
