More than 100 Pieces are on Display at the UMaine Department of Art’s Annual Judged Exhibition

The University of Maine’s 2014 annual Student Art Exhibition opens with a reception 5:30-7:30 p.m. Friday, April 4 in Lord Hall Art Gallery. Titled “Be, Do, Make,” the exhibition features 116 pieces from 62 artists.

The exhibition features work in a variety of media, including painting, drawing, photography, sculpture, ceramics, printmaking, graphic design and mixed media. More than 400 pieces by 125 student artists were considered for entry.

An award ceremony will begin at 6:15 p.m. in the Lecture Room, 100 Lord Hall. Andres Verzosa, director of Portland’s Aucocisco Galleries and a UMaine alumnus, juried the exhibition. Awards will include Best in Show, three Juror’s Awards and three Honorable Mentions. In addition, the Department of Art will present more than 50 awards recognizing excellence in studio art, art education studies and art history, according to UMaine art professor James Linehan. The majority of awards will include scholarships totaling nearly $25,000, Linehan says.

Most of the featured artists are students in the Department of Art, with majors in either studio art or art history. However, entries from all majors are accepted and featured in the exhibition.

The Student Art Exhibition has been an annual spring event for more than 50 years. Admission is free and open to the public. The exhibition runs until May 2.
