The Santa Monica College Emeritus College Art Gallery is presenting the first of two student juried art exhibitions through June 24.

Emeritus College currently serves about 3,200 older adults with more than 150 classes and special programs.

The juried art show features recent works of Emeritus College students. The artists work with their instructors in an effort to submit artworks that are a current expression and best example of their practice, a gallery spokesman said.

The pieces demonstrating artistic merit and a high amount of skill and aptitude are selected to be in the shows by a faculty member from the Santa Monica College Art Department.

Each show contains about 30 works, all created in a variety of mediums such as watercolor, oil, acrylic, pencil, charcoal and pastel, the gallery spokesman said.

The gallery is located on the first floor of Emeritus College, 1227 Second St., Santa Monica. Gallery hours are 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
