Student artwork featured in juried exhibition

Northwestern College’s final art show of the academic year will feature work chosen as part of a juried exhibition. The selected entries will be on display in the Te Paske Gallery April 15 through May 11, with a public reception scheduled for Friday, April 15, at 7 p.m.

Northwestern’s 44th annual Juried Student Art Exhibition gives the college’s art students the opportunity to competitively test their work with each other and to have the results of that competition exhibited. The show will feature paintings, drawings, prints, sculpture, ceramics and photographs, as well as mixed media and graphic design projects. While the students aren’t required to be art majors, all entries must be work created as part of a Northwestern College art course.

Shannon Sargent, the exhibitions/collections coordinator for the Sioux City Art Center, is serving as the juror for the show. Sargent holds a Master of Fine Arts degree in painting from the University of South Dakota. In addition to maintaining the permanent collection and installing exhibitions at the center, he produces and shows his work in the region. He also serves as an adjunct art professor at Morningside College in Sioux City, where he teaches painting and sculpture.

After judging the entries, Sargent will talk about the show and announce awards during the April 15 reception.

The Te Paske Gallery is located in the Thea G. Korver Visual Arts Center, on Highway 10 at 214 8th St. S.W. in Orange City. Gallery hours are 8 a.m. to midnight Monday through Saturday and 1 p.m. to midnight Sunday.
