Plymouth, N.H. –Plymouth State University students enrolled in many programs of the PSU Department of Art will submit the product of some of their creative efforts for judging by distinguished juror Patricia Carega during the 2012 Juried Student Exhibition March 13–April 7 at the Karl Drerup Art Gallery. Carega is owner and director of the Patricia Ladd Carega Gallery in Center Sandwich.

An opening reception will be held from 4­–6 p.m. Tuesday, March 13 at the gallery.Visitors to the exhibition will see sculpture, ceramics, drawing, photography, painting, printmaking and graphic design produced by these creative and ambitious artists.

The Juried Student Exhibition is an annual event for the PSU gallery program. Students will submit up to three works in as many as five levels of study in the Department of Art’s curriculum, with prizes awarded in each category. One level is for personal work developed outside the classroom. Each level has a “best in class” category and three “honorable mention” designations.  One work will be selected as “best in show.”

The Juried Student Exhibition provides an important opportunity for students to expand their artistic resume. The show allows the students to understand the real world process of entering an exhibition and to see what is expected of them in a professional manner in preparation for when they enter exhibitions outside of the university setting.

Gallery hours are  Monday­–Saturday, 10 a.m.–4 p.m.; Wednesday, 10 a.m.–8 p.m.; closed Sunday and PSU holidays. All gallery exhibitions are open to the public free of charge.
