55TH ANNUAL JURIED STUDENT EXHIBITION

The New Gallery (Austin Peay State University) / 730 Joseph St. April 5 - 26th

This competitive juried show honors the Department of Art + Design's outstanding student artists for their hard work and creativity. The show is professionally juried from outside Austin Peay State University, emulating the practice of real-world art shows. The exhibition showcases the array of artwork produced by students during the past academic year and gives students the opportunity to participate in a professional exhibition where a qualified juror selects artwork and artistic merit awards.
