Juried Art Show Features Student Works

The Annual Juried Student Art Show at Hope College has opened at the De Pree Art Center.

The exhibition will continue through Sunday, Dec. 8.  Admission is free.

The competitive exhibition, open to all students at Hope, is an annual fixture in the De Pree gallery.  Each year, the department of art and art history invites a recognized artist or curator to judge the student work.

This year’s guest juror, Charles Mason, is the founding director of the Kruizenga Art Museum at Hope.  Prior to joining the college in July, Mason was executive director of Pacific Asia Museum in Pasadena California.  He has also served as chief curator of the Gardiner Museum of Ceramic Art in Toronto, Canada; chief curator of the Harn Museum of Art at the University of Florida in Gainesville; and curator of Asian Art at the Allen Memorial Art Museum at Oberlin College in Ohio.

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.
