Northwestern student artwork part of 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 25 through May 6, with a public reception scheduled for Monday, April 25, at 7 p.m.

Northwestern’s 49th 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.

Dr. Heather Josselyn-Cranson of Orange City is serving as the juror for the show. Awards will be announced during the April 25 reception, when she will offer comments about her selections. Josselyn-Cranson is an associate professor of music and director of music ministries at Northwestern College. As such, she has twice participated in collaborative exhibits involving the art, music and English departments at NWC. She also is an award-winning composer of hymns and has taken a printmaking class while on sabbatical. She holds a doctorate in the theology of liturgy and liturgical music from Boston University School of Theology.

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.
