3/9/18 ASHLAND, Ohio – The Ashland University Juried Student Art Exhibition opens on Thursday, March 15, in the Coburn Gallery with a reception to be held from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. The exhibition runs from March 15 to April 8.
This exhibition will offer $1,100 in awards to student artists, including Best in Show, Bernini Award, Dean’s Award, People’s Choice Award and awards in each of the six art areas: painting, printmaking, sculpture, digital art & design, drawing and ceramics. The awards ceremony will begin at 5:30 p.m.
The annual exhibition represents a culmination of student work from university art classes during the school year. It is an opportunity for art students to take their best artwork from the year, learn how to professionally present it for display, and then receive feedback from an outside art professional.
The outside juror for the exhibition is Stephanie Craig. Craig is an assistant professor at Cuyahoga Community College Western Campus, where she teaches ceramics, 3D foundation and sculpture classes and is also the co-director of the campus art gallery.
The exhibition is an excellent opportunity to support the arts by purchasing a student artwork, whether you are just starting to collect art or adding to a collection.
Generous donations from Dr. Wendy and Scott Schaller, Dr. Dawn Weber and other private donors have allowed the University to offer several of these awards.
The Coburn Gallery is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday-Friday and 12 noon to 4 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. For more information on this exhibition, visit www.ashland.edu/coburngallery , find us on Facebook or call 419.289.5652.
