AUGUSTA – The UMA Charles Danforth Gallery is currently displaying the juried artwork of students from the UMA Art program at the 2015 Annual Juried Student Art Show until May 1st. There will be a reception and awards ceremony on Sunday, April 26th from 3:00pm – 5:00pm.
The work of each artist, which includes photography, printmaking, painting, drawing, sculpture, electronic arts, graphic novel, and other mixed media, was completed by students to fulfill class assignments throughout the past year.
After careful consideration both in terms of technical execution and the ideas presented through the work, Honorary Jurors, Deborah Fahy and Matt LeClair selected final pieces to reflect a broad range of media and topics while showcasing students at all stages in their academic development. They focused on work that was carefully crafted, thoughtfully developed and designed, and pieces that provoked a dialogue.
