Exhibit Dates: March 28 to April 17, 2013
Reception: Thursday, March 28, 7:00 p.m. · Fashion Show at 7:15 p.m.
HANCOCK, MI - A juried exhibit of artwork by students of the Finlandia University International School of Art & Design (ISAD) is featured at the Finlandia University Gallery, Hancock, from March 28 through April 17, 2013.
A reception for the artists will take place at the gallery on Thursday, March 28, from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. A fashion show will begin at 7:15 p.m. and awards for student excellence will be presented. The reception is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.
The exhibition includes art by students working in media including drawing, painting, illustration, ceramic design, fiber arts and fashion design, sculpture, integrated design, graphic design, digital media, photography, and mixed media/installation.
Much of the student artwork featured in the juried exhibit will be available for purchase.
Gallery director Carrie Flaspohler notes that the structure of the juried student exhibit has been changed this year.
"This year students entered work in one of three categories: two dimensional, three dimensional, and freshman work," Flaspohler says, explaining that the reduced number of categories is intended to eliminate artificial separations of media and encourage students to be inventive in their use and combinations of artistic media.
In each of the three categories, the jury will select a first and second place award, and an honorable mention award. The jury comprised a faculty member, a graduating ISAD senior, and a community member.
New awards this year are a Best of Show Award, a Faculty Award-an outstanding work selected by ISAD faculty, and a Purchase Award-a work which the ISAD will purchase for its permanent collection.
The Finlandia University International School of Art & Design Annual Juried Student Exhibition 2013 will be on display March 28 through April 17, 2013.
The Finlandia University Gallery is in the Finnish American Heritage Center, 435 Quincy St., downtown Hancock.
