Local businesses are supporting the arts by hosting exhibits that showcase the skills of Lycoming College students Jauzzle France and Elizabeth Hughes.

France, a sophomore commercial design major of St. Thomas, United States Virgin Islands, has a collection of digital photography and video, called “Family, Friends, Life,” displayed in the second floor lobby of the Community Arts Center. The exhibit debuted Friday, March 4, as part of Williamsport’s First Friday events.

Her works have captured moments in people lives in response to a question or on reflection of a particular experience. By viewing the pieces, viewers gain insights into who the artist is as an individual.

Elizabeth Hughes, a senior painting and printmaking major of Methuen, Mass., also debuted her “Illustrations and Imaginings” exhibit during the First Friday events at Barrel 135.

The illustrations in this exhibit display the artist’s love of character rendering and playful imagery. Images range from animals performing human acts, images based on Slavic folk tales, and a series of character portraits from Bosnian author Ivo Andrić’s novel The Bridge on the Drina.

Both exhibits are free and open to the public through March when the venues are normally open. Addresses and directions are on the hosting facility’s websites: Barrel 135 and Community Arts Center.
