The Annual Student Juried Exhibition To Open at Ohio Northern

juried showThe department of art & design proudly announces the annual Student Juried Exhibition, which will be on display at the Elzay Gallery of Art from November 4–December 17 in Ada, Ohio. A public reception and awards presentation will be held from 6 to 8 p.m., Tuesday, November 4.

For many years, a committee of sophomore art & design majors is responsible for organizing and presenting the show, traditionally the most popular gallery event of the academic year. This year's exhibition will feature original work in a variety of media such as ceramics, oils and watercolors, photographs, graphic design, drawings, sculpture, mixed media and printmaking.

The exhibition is a competition open to any undergraduate student enrolled at Ohio Northern University. Any work completed for an art & design departmental course is eligible for consideration. Submissions fall into three categories: two-dimensional, three-dimensional, and graphic design. Invited jurors review the submitted entries and make the final selections. This year, two external judges will jury the work into the exhibition.

"The exhibition provides students with the valuable experience of showing their work within a professional setting," said Melissa Eddings, Ohio Northern's gallery director and professor who curates the Elzay and Stambaugh Galleries. "At the same time, it provides the Ohio Northern and Ada communities an opportunity to view works by talented young artists and designers."

Admission to the Elzay Gallery of Art is free and open to the public, daily from noon - 5p.m. For additional information about the University's 2008-09 Arts Exhibition Season, contact the department of art & design at 419-772-2160.
