This show is a celebration of the creative endeavors of students taking art classes at UMaine. The 2023 Student Exhibition includes a range of media representing the variety of courses.

Students who were enrolled in an art class in fall 2022 and spring 2023 had the opportunity to submit up to six pieces and selections were made by a guest juror. This year’s juror is Timothy Peterson, an established executive director, curator and advocate for artists, contemporary art, access and organizational transparency. He currently serves as the executive director and chief curator of the Center for Maine Contemporary Art in Rockland.
