Juried art show


Student art showcased at 46th annual show

The Bluffton University art department will present its 46th annual Juried Student Exhibition from April 15-May 4 in the Grace Albrecht Gallery in Sauder Visual Arts Center. The exhibition, which is free and open to the public, will showcase work created this academic year by students in university art classes or supervised independent studies.

Gallery hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays and 1-5 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays except Saturday, May 4, when the gallery will be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.  

The Boehr Award for Best of Show, which carries a $150 cash prize, will be presented, as will four Awards of Distinction—each worth $75—and Senior Merit Awards, which are awarded, along with $35, to seniors who did not place in any other cash-award categories. First, second and third places, and honorable mention recipients, will be designated in each category. Cash awards are sponsored by the family of Bluffton alumnus Richard Boehr.

Students may enter up to three works in each of the following media: ceramics, glass, two- and three-dimensional design, drawing, computer generated, watercolor and painting, photography, printmaking and sculpture. Works included in the show are selected by a guest juror, who also chooses award winners.
