Juried Student Art Show Runs Dec. 1-15

The annual Hope College juried student art show will run from Monday, Dec. 1, through Monday, Dec. 15, in the gallery of the De Pree Art Center.

There will be an opening reception in the gallery on Monday, Dec. 1, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.

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

The competitive exhibition, open to all students at Hope College, is an annual fixture in the De Pree gallery. All Hope College students were eligible to submit work in any media.

Each year, the department of art and art history invites a recognized artist or curator to judge the student work. This year the juror is Joe Biel, a Los Angeles-based artist who is represented by Geoff Rosenthal of New York City.

The De Pree Art Center is located at 160 E. 12th St., on Columbia Avenue at 12th Street. The regular gallery hours are Mondays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m.; and Sundays from 1 p.m. until 5 p.m. Gallery hours may be reduced during breaks and holidays. The gallery is handicapped accessible.
