Humboldt State University’s 2013 Art Graduates exhibition will be held at the Reese Bullen Gallery, April 18-May 18. A public reception and brief awards ceremony will take place on Thursday, May 2, 5-7 p.m. A closing ceremony will be on Saturday May 18 following commencement.
The Art Graduates Exhibition will take the place of the annual juried show and will feature artwork by graduating art majors. This new exhibition gives all senior students the opportunity to present their best work to their families, friends and the community. “We wanted to make a show that was more inclusive and that better highlighted student success. I wanted to make sure that every graduating senior had a chance to show what they have done here at HSU and that they had the opportunity to celebrate their accomplishments with friends and family at the graduation gallery reception. The juried show was great, but every year there were some very deserving students that didn’t get selected,” said Teresa Stanley, Art Department Chair.
“The graduate show should be one to remember. There are many young talented art graduates who are eager to participate and display their work. I know first hand, that a lot of students I know are planning to enter and are just waiting for faculty approval. There will be pieces ranging from; sculptures, photographs, paintings, drawings, printmaking, and more. It should be really something to see. I am very excited to see and view these students work on display and hope others join along and appreciate the hard work and dedicated hours these students have contributed to finish their chosen emphasis of art,” said Jacob Horn, an HSU alumnus.
There will be a wide range of artwork which display student’s passions, cultures, and interests. This will be a time for the seniors to come together and see how much they themselves and their peers have progressed in their artistic path. We invite you to spare some time and come support the Art Graduates Exhibition.
