MC?art exhibit Feb. 21 to March 21

Marietta College Art Department continues its exhibition season with the 2014 Annual Juried Student Art Exhibition. The exhibition will be held in the Atrium Gallery (formerly the Hermann Fine Art gallery), third floor, Hermann Fine Arts Center, on the Marietta College campus at the corner of Fourth and Butler streets. The exhibition will run from Feb. 21 to March 21, with an opening reception on Friday, Feb. 21, from 6 to 8 p.m., with an awards ceremony at 7 p.m.

This juried exhibition features work done between February 2013 and February 2014, by students enrolled in a Marietta College art or graphic design class. A variety of media will be represented, including drawing, print making, oil painting, graphic design, and photography. A best of show prize will be awarded as well as prizes for outstanding work in each medium. John Charm Kim and Alix Northrup will jury the student work. Kim is a studio artist whose work in the solo exhibition Dualities opened the Art Department’s exhibition season in September. Northrup is a graduate of the Marietta College Graphic Design program and is currently the associate creative director for Ulman Design in Marietta.

Professor Beth Nash, exhibition coordinator, says of the exhibition: “The annual student show is always one of our favorites in the art department. It is exciting to see the work that students have chosen to exhibit. This is a juried show so only about 50 percent of the work that is submitted gets juried in. The exhibit showcases the best of our student work and illustrates the growth and energy of our students.”

The exhibition and opening are free and open to the public. Regular gallery hours are Monday through Friday 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday 1 to 10 p.m. Hermann Fine Arts Center is handicapped accessible.
