LANCASTER – Ohio University-Lancaster students are putting their artwork on display for the campus and community to view. The Student Art Show opens Thursday, April 10 in the Raymond S. Wilkes Gallery for the Visual Arts in Brasee Hall.
The show will feature a combination of students, both art majors and non-majors, showing their work from this year,” said Bianca Gery, one of the student organizers of the show.
“ I think as students go through college, they increasingly see how important it is to show their work to other students and faculty and the community. It’s a way for them to network and show themselves to the community,” she continued.
Art is a form of expression and it shows somebody’s culture, history and what they are interested in. It’s a way to showcase different people coming together, explained Gery.
Some students have submitted artwork using recycled materials.
Trisha Clifford-Sprouse is the faculty coordinator for the exhibit.
The opening reception is slated for April 10 from 5 to 7 p.m. The exhibit will be on display through April 25.
