From March 27th to April 16th the Martin Museum of Art is proud to host the annual art student/studio faculty exhibition. This is a time for budding Baylor artists to display their unique work and style. Student pieces will be juried by Robin Dru Germany, associate professor of art at Texas Tech University. Professor Germany works with traditional and digital photography and has won numerous awards for her work including a regional NEA, and two awards for artists from the Polaroid Corporation. As juror, she will select approximately 75 works from the pool of submissions for display. "Whether a student's work is accepted or not, we hope they will see the jury process as a valuable experience that is an important part of their education" said Karin Gilliam, director of the museum. A reception and award ceremony will be held on March 27th, from 7-9pm.
In addition, Gallery II will contain original works of art created by the art studio faculty that range from photography to printmaking, painting to sculpture and ceramics. "The art students also benefit from seeing the most recent artwork created by their studio professors" Gilliam said. "The faculty exhibition is a wonderful environment for personal dialogue. The students always come away with additional insight and respect for their professors."
The Martin Museum of Art is located in the Hooper-Schaefer Fine Arts Center on the Baylor University campus. Hours are 10-5 Tuesday through Friday, and 12-5pm on Saturday. The museum is closed during university holidays. Admission is free and all events are open to the public, unless specified.
