Student Art Exhibit opening

Uncategorized

The University of Houston Libraries is pleased to host its third annual Student Art Exhibit in the M.D. Anderson Library.  The exhibit opening will take place at 5:30 on the third floor of the M.D. Anderson Library’s red wing.  It will be on display from February 11-April 15, 2010.

The twenty artists whose work was selected by the jury, represent a broad cross-section of University of Houston students.  All classifications, from freshman to Master’s candidates, are represented.  While most of the students are majoring in Studio Arts, several artists were selected from other disciplines, including English, pharmacy, and biomedical engineering.  The artwork on display includes paintings, sculpture, photography, and graphic art.

The competitive art exhibit was juried by representatives from local museums, arts organizations, and the UH School of Art faculty.  The exhibit jury selected thirty-three works from nearly one hundred submissions.  Katherine Veneman, the Curator of Education at the Blaffer Gallery, served on the jury and curated the exhibit.
