A reception will be held in the second floor rotunda on Friday from 4 to 6 p.m., with student awards announced at 5 p.m., including the prestigious Margaret Stonewall Wooldridge Hamblet awards, the Allan P. DeLoach Award for Photography, the Mid-South Ceramics awards, and the Plaza Artist Materials awards.
Participating seniors include Margaret “Elle” Burnett, Kelsey Creel, Lesley Hill, Desiré Hough, David Krenz, Demi Landstedt, and Anisha Patel. Their work will remain on display in Space 204 through Friday, May 9.
Gallery hours are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday, with weekend hours of noon to 4 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays for the duration of the exhibition. “It’s an exciting show, with some unique, weird and interesting projects,” said Mel Ziegler, chair of the Department of Art. “I’m pleased to see the progress that this group has made. I hope everyone has the opportunity to see the exhibition.”
