ONU Juried Student Art exhibition on display
The Ohio Northern University juried student art exhibition will be on display in the Elzay Gallery of Art from March 12 -30.
Traditionally the most popular art gallery event of the academic year, the exhibition will feature original work from ONU undergraduate students 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 ONU. Students are invited to submit works created in any art department class to be considered for the show. Work is submitted in three categories, two-dimensional, three-dimensional and graphic design.
Invited jurors review the submitted entries and make the final selections. This year's jurors are Lansford Holness, assistant professor of art in graphic design of the University of Findlay, and Michael Howell, assistant professor of art history and fine arts of Tiffin University.
"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 faculty member 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."
A public reception and an awards presentation will be held on Tuesday, March 13 at 6 p.m. in the gallery lobby.
Admission to the Elzay Gallery of Art is free and open to the public. It is open from noon to 5 p.m. daily and by appointment. For additional information about the arts exhibition season, contact the department of art at 419-772-2160.
