CBU students display their artwork at Honors Exhibit
Riverside, Calif. (March 12, 2020) – California Baptist University hosted an opening reception for the 8th annual Honors Exhibit at the Rose Garden Chapel Art Gallery on March 10.
A variety of work produced by CBU students in fine art courses are on display at the exhibit. Fine art faculty selected the works, which feature painting, drawing, mixed media and sculpture. Though the works come from fine art classes, the students featured in the exhibition come from a variety of majors.
Kristi Lippire, associate professor of visual art, said she looks forward to the event each year.
“The students are so excited, proud and surprised at how much great work is made at CBU,” Lippire said. “The event is also a great chance for parents to see their student’s hard work and meet the faculty that make up part of their CBU family.”
The opening reception also included an awards ceremony that highlighted distinction within the Honors Exhibit.
CBU students were judged on five different platforms: drawing, design, mixed media, ceramics and painting.
Best Drawing: Desiree Fitch
Best Painting: Kate Perkins
Best Design Project: Caitlyn Deutsche
Best Sculpture: Christina Izaguirre
Best Mixed Media: Shannon Fitzgerald (self-portrait featured above)

This year the exhibit also features a number of framed artworks that will be shown in the library at CBU starting in the fall.
