Annual Student Juried Show 2003

March 21 – April 18, 2003
Guest Juror: Jessie Lacayo

The Artist as a Student
This Juried Exhibition presents diverse perspectives of what it means to engage in the process of art making. As students, the development of skills and articulation of concepts is key in their future as professionals in the arts. The works selected, reflect the studentsÕ experience and status as student artists. Humor, optimism, irony, isolation and anxiety are all expressed through the works in this exhibition. A strong exploration of identity and self-awareness in relation to the world around them is also considered. Jury Exhibitions most often serve as an encouragement and a reminder to students that the creation, production and presentation of art is a multi-layered process, requiring a great deal of commitment and investment on their part. For the public, it makes us aware of the connections student artists share with local, national and international communities, as well as the significance of art in our lives. The works submitted ranged from the objective assignments of foundation exercises to the complex content-driven images of students in the advanced stages of their degrees. Selection was based on the approach and consideration of technical craftsmanship of the work as well as the conceptual issues involved. Growing technical abilities are displayed by each of the participants while they struggle to realize a unique vision and statement. My sincere recognition and thanks to all the students who submitted their work for consideration.
