To celebrate, there will be a reception and awards ceremony on Thursday, March 22, from 5 to 7 p.m. at the museum. The reception and exhibition are free and open to the public.
The exhibition provides an opportunity for students to share their work with a larger public while enhancing their skills in presenting artwork in a professional gallery setting. The students must write artist statements, compile digital images of their objects and prepare their work for display by framing, matting and creating mounts. Their work will be judged by Beth Hinderliter, associate professor of cross disciplinary studies at James Madison University.
On display through March 30 are 22 works by 18 undergraduate students representing a variety of disciplines. The works include photography, sculpture, ceramics, book arts, painting, drawing and fiber art.
