34th Annual Student Juried Exhibition closes Feb. 19th.

The School of Art and Design’s annual student juried show had its reception on January 18th. Organization of the show is a collaborative effort between Visions: the Student Art Society and the Zuckerman Museum of Art. Exhibited in the Joe Mack Wilson building’s Fine Arts Gallery, this 34th annual show features some of the best artwork by students of the School of Art and Design.

Every year in late November, a call for entries is announced. Open to all Kennesaw State University students, the submission process involves the uploading of digital images of the artist’s original artwork with a small entry fee. The entries are juried by a different person selected from recommendations by School of Art and Design faculty and staff of the Zuckerman Museum of Art.  This year’s juror was Tori Tinsley, renowned Atlanta artist.

Selected artists received cash prizes for first, second, and third place. Three Purchase Awards were also chosen by the College of the Arts Dean, School of Art & Design Director, and through a University donation. Recipients’ art work will have been purchased for the prestigious KSU Campus Collection.
