Annual Juried PSU Student Exhibition

March 14th, 2014 by Lynn

PLYMOUTH — The Karl Drerup Art Gallery and Exhibitions Program at Plymouth State University will present the 2014 Juried Student Exhibition March 25-April 13 at the Karl Drerup Art Gallery. A reception will be held from 4-6 p.m. March 25 in the gallery.

The exhibition showcases selected works in all media by students from across the campus. Students from all art department levels and disciplines share the outcomes of their progress in education and refinement in art making in this show. Students may each submit up to three pieces of exhibition-ready art made within the last year. Only 15 pieces will be accepted for each level in the exhibition, and awards will be made for “Best in Level” works and one for overall “Best in Show.”

Interim Gallery Director Cynthia Robinson says, “The format for this exhibition is unusual in that art work in each level is judged in relation only to other students’ submissions within that level.”

There are four levels, from introductory or foundation level through to capstone projects, approximating the traditional levels of a four-year degree. In addition, a fifth level, one of completely independent works, is judged by itself. This category is in keeping with the department’s tradition of encouraging and nurturing independent, self-directed creativity according to Robinson.

This year’s jurors are Adam Blue, education director of AVA Gallery and Art Center in Lebanon, and Suzanne Canali, chair of the art education department at the NH Institute of Art in Manchester. Blue is also art editor of “The Whitefish Review,” a nationally acclaimed literary and arts journal, and serves on the board of the Helen Day Art Center in Stowe, Vt. He graduated Dartmouth College, studied painting at the San Francisco Art Institute, and holds an MFA from the California College of the Arts.

Canali graduated from New England College with a BA in painting and public relations, and earned an MA in liberal arts from New York University. She also holds K-12 art educator certification from Franklin Pierce University and is pursuing a Certificate of Advanced Graduate Studies at Plymouth State University. As a juror, Canali says she will be looking for compositions that illustrate progress in quality and creativity in both the subject and handling of media.

A new interactive way to experience the gallery will be launched for this exhibition. Students will record comments about their work, and the recordings will be paired with images of their work to create an audio tour of the exhibition both online, and as a walking tour.

Karl Drerup Art Gallery Hours are Monday-Friday, 10 a.m.-4 p.m.;  Wednesday 10 a.m.-8 p.m.;  Saturday and Sunday 1-4 p.m. during the academic year. The gallery is closed PSU holidays.
