Eastern Florida State College in Melbourne presents their annual Juried Student Art Exhibit in the Maxwell C. King Center Lobby Gallery now-April 27. This highly competitive exhibit drew nearly 100 entries from EFSC students taking courses in Ceramics, Sculpture, Printmaking, Drawing, Painting, Design, and Computer Graphics. Students were invited to submit assignments that they created in their academic art classes on the Melbourne Campus.

Students complete foundational coursework necessary for majors as diverse as Graphic Design, Interior Design, Fashion Design, Studio Art, Art Therapy, Art Education, and more.

Berning earned his MFA in Ceramics from the University of Tennessee Knoxville and maintains a ceramic studio in Port Orange. In addition to exhibiting his work across the United States, he has taught at numerous colleges, schools and art centers. As judge, Berning selected 41 entries to be included in the show, as well as designating 13 award winners.

Over $2700 in awards have been donated by: Mr. Ray Kania, Meehan's Office Products, The Brevard Watercolor Society, Mimi's Crafts, the EFSC Melbourne Campus Provost Office, Liberal Arts Department, Bookstore, and Art Faculty members.
