REXBURG — Brigham Young University-Idaho’s Department of Art will host the Student Art Show in the Spori Building Thursday through Dec. 18 to showcase different types of artwork from BYU-Idaho students majoring in art. The showcase will feature various works of art, including ceramics, drawings, graphic designs, illustrations, paintings, photography, printmaking and sculptures.
An opening reception and awards presentation on Thursday from 7 to 9 p.m. will kick-off the opening of the gallery for the public.
Every student participating in the showcase was permitted to submit up to four pieces of art to display in the showcase. Art Department faculty members then decided which art pieces to display in the gallery.
According to Art Gallery Director, Kyoung DaBell, students will be awarded for their artwork and some pieces will be available for purchase.
“This exhibit is an excellent opportunity to see a variety of art produced by students; there will be some awards with cash prizes. This is an exciting occasion for students to show their work to their peers and the public,” DaBell stated.
Students, faculty and the community are all encouraged to attend the gallery. The gallery is open to the public from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. on weekdays and 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Saturdays.
