Juried Student Art Exhibit Opens April 15

April 8, 1997

An juried art exhibition featuring the work of Baylor University art students will run from Tuesday, April 15, through Saturday, May 3, in the University Art Gallery in the Hooper-Schaefer Fine Arts Building on the Baylor campus.

To enter the juried show, student artists submitted up to five works that have been completed in a Baylor studio art class between spring 1996 and spring 1997 and have not been exhibited previously. Denny Tickett Jr., professor of drawing and painting at the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor, is the juror for the show. Tickett is responsible for choosing the show and selecting three awards of excellence worth $100 each.

"This will be an outstanding show," said Paul McCoy, associate professor of art at Baylor and director of the University Art Gallery. "This is very high-quality work. The work that the students have produced in the last year will make this show as good as in years past. The show will span all the different studio disciplines, everything from photography to sculpting, ceramics and painting. It is quite a broad show."

A reception for the student art exhibition as well as the on-going faculty art exhibit will run from 7-9 p.m. Monday, April 14, in the University Art Gallery and the adjacent Martin Museum of Art. Guests can sample refreshments and listen to a four-piece jazz band while viewing the two exhibits. The awards presentation for the student art exhibit will take place at

8 p.m. There is no charge to attend the reception.

The University Art Gallery is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday-Friday and noon to

5 p.m. Saturday. For more information, call 755-1867.
