Mountain Empire Community College produces an annual arts magazine, titled Explorations. In these pages you will find the poems, photographs, drawings and paintings of some of our very talented students and alumni. The artistic style and vision that produce each piece may vary greatly, but all the works represent an artist who’s creative, inspired, engaged with the world, full of curiosity and energy, and eager to reach an audience.
