Studio 23 Collegiate Spotlight: Jocelyn Gonzales

Studio 23 is pleased to announce the launch of our Collegiate Spotlight Program! The Collegiate Spotlight will feature the artwork of area college students with a developed portfolio of artwork. Students will be recommended for the Collegiate Spotlight by area college faculty and staff and approved by Curator of Exhibits and Membership, Amy Gibas.

Students will be featured in the Tabor Gallery of Studio 23 for 7 to 8 weeks with four rotations from January through September, when the Tabor Gallery will be handed over to our Textile and Fiber Artist in Residence for a solo exhibition. Students will have the opportunity to work with Amy to arrange, hang, or otherwise display their work, gaining valuable hands-on experience.



We are happy to inaugurate our Collegiate Spotlight program with Delta College student Jocelyn Gonzales! Jocelyn was recommended for the Collegiate Spotlight by Delta College faculty and will have her artwork featured in the Tabor Gallery during May and June.  Jocelyn is an artist and Art Education major living in Bay City, Michigan. She loves gardening, riding her bike, and playing games with her friends and family.

Jocelyn has also been recently hired as an instructor for children’s classes here at Studio 23! Reflecting on her time as a young student, Jocelyn says “I remember having so much fun when I was younger taking classes at Studio 23. Now, I teach here and I’m so excited to show kids like me everything that art can offer them.”

Welcome Jocelyn!
