To quote Ms. Nunez, “Seventy-nine impressive undergraduate and graduate students submitted art for consideration this year.  It was very rewarding to review all of the entries, which ranged from traditional oil painting to video installations to fiber art.  Just as there was a variety in media, there was also a variety in subject matter, and although there is no connecting theme between the selected works, it was refreshing to see such differences in the artists’ personalities”.

Congratulations to all of our students who participated in this year’s exhibition.
