Juried student art
University to host annual student juried exhibition virtually
The Bluffton University art department will present its 53rd Juried Student Exhibition from April 20-May 9 in the Grace Albrecht Gallery of Sauder Visual Arts Center. The exhibition is open to students, faculty and staff. The public can view the work virtually at www.bluffton.edu/artgallery starting April 25.
The exhibition will showcase work created this academic year by students in university art classes or supervised independent studies. Bluffton University students were able to enter up to three works in each of the following media: ceramics, glass, two-dimensional design, three-dimensional design, drawing, painting, photography, printmaking and sculpture. Up to five works could be submitted for computer generated artwork.
The Gregg Luginbuhl Awards, which includes a total of $550 in cash prizes donated by the Luginbuhl family, will be selected by the juror, Dan Chudzinski, Curator and Director of the Mazza Museum in Findlay. A best of category award will be designated in each category along with honorable mentions made at the juror’s discretion. A special award, the Gregg Luginbuhl Award in Ceramics, will be chosen directly by the Luginbuhl family.
Gregg Luginbuhl was a professor of art and chair of the department at Bluffton for 30 years before he retired and was named professor emeritus in 2014. Gregg continued his father’s legacy of art education at Bluffton. Darvin Luginbuhl taught at Bluffton for 26 years and retired in 1984. Both professors were also Bluffton graduates.
