The exhibition features the work of 40 NCC student artists and includes animations, photography, ceramics, as well as illustrations, oil paintings, digital art, etchings, graphite drawings, and India ink pieces. The diverse collection of 67 artworks selected for the annual exhibit provides a glimpse into the wide range of offerings from the NCC Art Department.

Art Department Professors Claudia Cage, Christine Lawrence, Izolda Maksym, Bill Shillalies and Robert Toedter judged the competition, as did Justina Colon and Joseph Gioia from the Gallery. Additional support was provided by Art Professor Nathan Wasserbauer.

A total of 15 awards were given, including two Awards of Excellence, to Aylin Calderon Mejia for Mobile Pet Grooming Spa Website (Adobe Illustrator) and Pedro López for Subjective Beauty (ceramic).
