This spring, Crooked Tree Arts Center-Petoskey and North Central Michigan College (NCMC) are once again collaborating to showcase the work of student artists in the community.


This exhibit will feature a broad range of media to reflect the classes offered at NCMC.

Included are animation, ceramics, charcoal and pencil drawings, glass, metalwork, acrylic and oil paintings, graphic design, and digital art.
All work will be displayed in the Atrium Gallery.

The following 29 North Central Michigan College student artists are featured in the exhibition:

Phillip Allore, Cody Bigjohn, Meghan Casey, Stephanie Chipman, Sarah Christine, Zender Conditori, Zane Cone, Nancy Demeuse, Elizabeth Dufek, Julie Eckhardt, Abby Felski, Darlene Guelker, Kristie Julian, Julie Lendvoy, Robbin Liegl, Raquel Macias, Oliver McCarthy, Easton Moore, Alta Munson, Thomas Quinlan, Beatriz Ramalho, Ann Scott, Milla Tarvudd, Angel Vanloo, Katherine Watchorn, Kasey Weaver, Debra Zagurny, Zachary Zeller, and Camella Zipp

Exhibiting artist Camella Zipp was also a recipient of one of Crooked Tree Arts Center’s 2017 Youth Arts Scholarships.
