2D and 3D artwork on display at the 2023 Student Juried Exhibit.

On March 23, Finlandia University celebrated the arts with three events in one night, including a faculty exhibit, a cardboard fashion show and the 2023 Juried Student Exhibition.

Hosted by FinnU’s International School of Art & Design (ISAD), the juried student exhibit was attended by friends, family, faculty and staff who gathered at Finlandia’s Reflections Gallery on the second floor of the Jutila Center to view and discuss artwork submitted by students.

In total, 10 students won 12 awards presented by Finlandia University Gallery Director Carrie Flaspohler in the categories of 2D, 3D, Freshman, Faculty and Purchase.

A slideshow of images from the 2023 Juried Student Exhibition and cardboard fashion show was created by adjunct art instructor and TRIO Pre-College Program staff member Gini Gesler, which can be found below.
