ELLISVILLE – The art work of ten Jones County Junior College students is now on display through April 29 at the Eula Bass Lewis Art Gallery on the JCJC campus. Each sophomore visual art student has worked with instructors to choose the strongest and most professional examples they have created during their two years at Jones for public viewing. 
JCJC art instructor Mark Brown said about the show, “Not only is it a cross-section of the best work from the past two years, but it also represents the capabilities of each student as they transfer to university programs.”
The show encompasses many forms and media including painting, sculpture, prints, computer graphics, found object work, ceramics, drawings and more. The students participating in the exhibit are Ethan Manning-Petal, Lindsay Middleton-Laurel, Nicole Ainsworth-Laurel, Anna Dancsisin-Summit, Anna Love-Laurel, Jerrad Hinton-Laurel, Sarah Carson-Hattiesburg, Catie Murphy-Bay Springs, Tasha Patterson-Soso, and Ryan Phillips-Ellisville.
Brown explained students who exhibit their work at a gallery show gain experience in appropriate arrangement, and organization of the gallery.
"We are extremely proud of our students’ progress, especially those that are participating in the exhibit," said Brown. 
Also included in the show is Jerrad Hinton’s “Eclipse” in granite sculpture. It won an Honorable mention from the Mississippi Community/Junior College Art Instructor Association statewide art show.
The gallery is open to the public free of charge: Monday through Thursday from 8 a.m. until 3 p.m. On Friday’s the gallery is open from 8 a.m. until 2:30 p.m. and is closed during lunch from 11:30 until noon daily. For more information call the gallery at 601-477-4148.
