The work includes drawings and needlework done by students in the drawing and special studio courses taught by PRCC art instructor Charleen Null.
“It’s open to the students,” she said. “If they’ve done work, the can contribute to the show.”
Approximately 50 pieces are on display, including a drawing of purple and white pansies by Mariah LeBlanc, a general studies major from Purvis.
