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.
