Work by The University of Texas at Tyler art students will be displayed in an upcoming annual exhibition, according to Ray Sikes, UT Tyler Meadows Gallery media coordinator.
The 2007 Best of the Best: Juried Student Exhibition will run April 30 through Aug. 3 at the UT Tyler Meadows Gallery. An opening reception will take place 6-7:30 p.m. May 4.
“The Juried Student Exhibition is an annual event where the best work from the previous year by UT Tyler art students is chosen for display. Each year drawings, paintings, sculpture, prints, collage and ceramics are displayed in the Meadows Gallery in the R. Don Cowan Fine and Performing Arts Center,” said Sikes.
The UT Tyler art faculty invited all art students to provide two- and three-dimensional pieces to be juried for the exhibition.
Three weeks prior, art students were encouraged to enter their work in a competition to be placed on the show mailer cover. Work by UT Tyler art students Michael Stephen, Teresa Moralez, Tracy O’Daniel and Jeff Huff was selected.
“This cover contest provides exposure for these students’ art pieces to several hundred friends of the Meadows Gallery,” Sikes added.
The public is invited to attend the exhibition.
