Reception & Awards Ceremony: Thursday, February 27 from 5-7 p.m.
Western Carolina University’s Annual Juried Undergraduate Exhibition is one of the longest-running Catamount art traditions.
For emerging artists, this exhibition is an extraordinary opportunity to share their artwork with a larger public and to enhance their skills in presenting artwork in a professional gallery setting. Their work is reviewed by an outside art professional who has the challenge of making selections from the many talented students who submit an application. This year, the exhibition is juried by Tracey Morgan, owner of Tracey Morgan Gallery in Asheville.
There will be a reception and awards ceremony on Thursday, February 27, from 5-7 p.m. at the museum.
Victoria Alexander, Christopher Cagle, Cristina Colom, Kelsey L. Dozier, Jeremy Gilbert, Mariah Harris, Connor, Henderson, Kaitlyn James, Zoë Koval, Sarah Tess Kunkleman, Tracie Macias, Winston Massey, Christina Perry, Kristen Price, Hallie Sholar, Melinda Solorio, Marguerite Suminski, Justin Toms, Aleaha Waldroup, Maya White, Katie Williamson, and Sierra Wills.
