Juried Student Show Runs Through Friday, Dec. 14

Posted November 28, 2001

HOLLAND -- The gallery of the De Pree Art Center will feature its annual Juried Student Show from Friday, Nov. 30, through Friday, Dec. 14.

There will be an opening reception on Friday, Nov. 30, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Refreshments will be served.

The public is invited to both the exhibition and the opening reception. Admission is free.

All Hope College students were eligible to submit work in any media. The exhibition was juried by Hope Palmer, an artist and educator, and Dirk Bakker, the chief photographer at the Detroit Institute of Arts. Works range from traditional media such as drawing, photography and painting to multimedia sculptural installations featuring a full-scale fiberglass canoe.

Also featured in the Corridor Gallery is an exhibition of works not selected by the jurors. The corridor exhibition was developed by art history students inspired by the "Salon des RefusÚs," an exhibition held in Paris in 1863 of work by Impressionist artists rejected by the traditional Academy.

Baker of Wheaton, Ill.; junior Jen Barrett of Findlay, Ohio; junior Cheri Cecil of Haslett; sophomore Jill DeVries of Zeeland; freshman Rick Edwards of West Olive; junior Matt Evearitt of Ada; senior Rachel K.R.
