From a press release:

The artistic talents of 21 graphic design seniors at the Pennsylvania College of Technology in Williamsport will be showcased in “Graphic Design 2021,” the annual student portfolio exhibition in The Gallery at Penn College.

Running from Monday, April 26 through Friday, May 7, the exhibit can be viewed in person at the gallery, which is open from 2 p.m.-8 p.m. on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays and 10 a.m.-4 p.m. on Wednesdays and Fridays. It is closed on the weekends.

The participating students are Lady A. Colon Morales from Lebanon; Cameron K. Cooper, Bloomsburg; Sarah E. DeLaurentis, Drums; Katherine A. Downes, Fleetwood; Abigail E.

All have petitioned to graduate in May, and they will celebrate their exhibition in a private reception with graphic design faculty members.

Located on the third floor of the Madigan Library, the gallery (1 College Ave., Room 303, Williamsport) is following COVID-19 safety protocols, including requiring masks, social distancing, and capacity limits. Last year, the graphic design exhibit moved online for the first time in its 12-year history due to the pandemic.

The annual portfolio exhibition displays the best design, illustration, and web design work of graphic design students in their final semester of study at Penn College. The show gives students a chance to present their work in marketing, branding, advertising, and design to industry professionals and the community.

Penn College graphic design students have consistently earned recognition in regional, national, and international advertising design competitions, particularly in the student category of the American Advertising Federation’s American Advertising Awards and AIGA Blue Ridge’s Flux Student Design Competition.

“Graphic Design 2021” will also be available in a virtual format after Friday, April 30 on the graphic design program’s website.

The Gallery at Penn College, an educational resource for Penn College students and a cultural asset to the college and community, is dedicated to promoting art appreciation through exhibitions of contemporary art. Gallery endeavors have been supported, in part, by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.
