LHU announces new juried student art exhibit
Opening reception March 28
March 22, 2012
A new art exhibit will open for public viewing on Monday, March 26, in Lock Haven University’s Sloan Fine Arts Gallery. The juried exhibit will be comprised entirely of student works.
A juried exhibition is one for which the works on display are selected by an independent, outside juror from all those submitted for consideration. Juror for the exhibit will be artist Elizabeth Klimek, whose own works are featured in the current exhibit in the Sloan Gallery.
This is an excellent opportunity for student artists. They benefit from having their worked judged by a professional artist and build their own professional resumés.
The show will have its official opening on Wednesday, March 28 at an 8:00 p.m. reception in the Sloan Gallery. A highlight of the reception will be the presentation of awards for Best in Show, Best in 2-D, Best in 3-D, and Best in Graphic Design.
There is no cost to attend the reception and members of the community are warmly invited to participate. This event provides the opportunity meet the student artists, members of the art faculty, and the juror.
The Student Juried Art Show runs until April 20. The gallery is open for free public viewing weekdays from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m.
