The annual exhibition represents a culmination of student work from university art classes during the school year. It is an opportunity for art students to take their best artwork from the year, learn how to professionally present it for display, and then receive feedback from an outside art professional.
The outside juror for exhibition is John Hunting Hansen is a Studio Technician and Adjunct Assistant Professor for the College of Wooster. He received his Master of Fine Arts Degree in Sculpture from the University of Iowa. John’s creative work explores the relationships of waste as material and as a human condition. John has shown his work around the country. He has been in group exhibitions at Capital University, Ashland University, University of Wisconsin Oshkosh, Arizona State University, Northwest Missouri State University and Beloit College. He has been in solo and two person shows at the University of Minnesota, Quad City Art Center, Charles H. MacNider Art Museum, and the University of Iowa.
The exhibition is an excellent opportunity to support the arts by purchasing a student artwork, whether you are just starting to collect art or adding to a collection.
The exhibition runs from March 12-April 1, 2015. A generous donation from Charles Caldemeyer, Dr. Dawn Weber and other private donors has allowed the University to offer several of these awards.
