Visual Communications Students at Nashville State to Showcase Work

NASHVILLE, Tenn. April 18, 2017 – Nashville State Community College invites the community to attend the Visual Communications Spring Portfolio showcase to be held at the main campus on May 2nd from 5:00–7:00 p.m. The showcase will feature the work of 24 students in the Visual Communications program at Nashville State Community College that includes photography, graphic design, multimedia, and web design. The show will be held in the art gallery space in the H building located on the north side of the campus at 120 White Bridge Road in Nashville. Admission is free and open to the public.

The two-year Visual Communications Associate of Applied Science program at Nashville State puts students in a creative environment with state-of-the-art technology to learn design principles, current image technology, business practices, and portfolio development. Students will display their best work including printed pieces, illustrations, brochures, photography, and web sites. “The multimedia and web students will showcase a one-page website including animated video, audio, and interactive HTML5 content that was designed, written, and produced by the students,” said Dale Rogers, Professor of Web and Multimedia Design. The program, in conjunction with the Nashville State Foundation have partnered with several local sponsors to help add to the event including a generous donation of tablets from Microsoft that will be used to enhance the multimedia and web design presentations.

“This is the first time we’ve brought together students from each of the four concentrations (photography, graphic design, web design, and multimedia design) for a showcase event,” said Beth Gorham, Assistant Professor of Photography at NSCC, “and for many of these students, this will be the first time their work will be seen outside the classroom.”

“We work with these students for two years developing their knowledge and creative skills that are necessary to work in a rapidly changing industry,” said Emily Naff, Associate Professor of Photography at NSCC. “This event is all about letting them shine and show off their creative works while at the same time giving them exposure.”
