"Not At Our Hands" by Aaron Mercer. Winner of Best of Show from the 27th Annual Juried Student Art Exhibition
KENNESAW, Ga.—Kennesaw State Univeristy will present the 28th Annual Juried Student Art Exhibition from Jan. 27-Feb. 10 in the Fine Arts Gallery of the Joe Mack Wilson Building. Sponsored by the Visions Student Art Guild, the exhibition is open to all KSU students, and the entries will be juried by Atlanta-area arts professionals. Cash prizes will be awarded to winners in each of the following categories: best of show and first place in painting, drawing, sculpture, ceramics, alternative processes, graphic design and photography. The opening reception for the exhibition will be on Jan. 27 from 5-8 p.m.
Visions president April Marten says, “I have been involved in the annual student exhibition for the past four years and it is exciting to see how the level of competition grows each year. It is always fun to see which works are selected by the juror to be in the show and to see which pieces place as winners.”
Some of the works will be available for purchase, and patrons may inquire if they are interested in purchasing a student's particular piece.
“The annual juried show provides an opportunity for students to exhibit their work on campus, and expose it to an arts professional in the Atlanta area,” Marten says. “The exhibition is also another opportunity for our student body to view student art work.”
All exhibition is free and open to the public. Fine Arts Gallery hours are Monday-Thursday 11 a.m.–3 p.m. and Wednesday and Thursday evenings 7-9 p.m. For a complete schedule and more information, call 770-499-3223.
