Around 200 people joined in the artistic celebration of “Design: 2017” at its opening reception Friday. Seventeen graphic design seniors presented their portfolios to appreciative family, friends, the college community and other admirers who filled The Gallery at Penn College. The annual exhibition gives students a chance to present their work in marketing, branding and design. The works will be on display through May 12. Exhibit hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Thursdays, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Fridays, and 1 to 4 p.m. Sundays. (The gallery will be closed May 7, as well as Saturdays and Mondays.)
