The student section includes full-color reproductions of all 125 exhibited student works, with award recipients identified in the seven media-based categories (Ceramics & 3D Design, Freehand Drawing, Painting & Life Studies, Printmaking & 2D Design, Graphic Design & Digital Illustration, Film & Animation, and Photography), as selected by this year's guest jurist, Kristina Newhouse of the University Art Museum at Cal State Long Beach.
The Cerritos College Art Gallery presents rotating exhibitions highlighting the work of emerging and mid-career artists. A special emphasis is placed on works that confront challenging and pressing issues in contemporary art and culture. In support of exhibitions, the Cerritos College Art Gallery also regularly hosts workshops, lectures, and performances.
