About this Event
Welcome to the annual Juried Student Exhibition. During these pandemic times we have transitioned much of the gallery to an online format using this website and the Visual Studies Department Instagram.
We are so excited to have artist and curator E. M. Laursen to serve as our juror this year. Laursen, a born and raised Texan, is an artist, independent curator, + consultant, and community organizer living in Austin, TX. Previously the Associate Director & Curator at Pump Project, she now contributes to several arts organizations in areas of communications, marketing, and community engagement. Since receiving her BFA in Studio Art at The University of Texas at Austin in 2015, she has focused on leadership development, team communication, and development in various fields. Her experience has reinforced her commitment to advocating for programs and space at the intersection of artists and the community. She is currently pursuing her Masters in Mental Health Counseling. During her free time, she volunteers and work-trades for organizations she aligns with.
We have a wonderful selection of works chosen by our juror who had over sixty entries to select from. Laursen states “The selected works symbolize the range of soft and chaotic, personal and natural, idiosyncratic and mundane parts that made up the days of 2020.”
Join us Tuesday March 9, 2021 from 6pm-8pm on Zoom to hale this years participants. We will announce the winners for the following awards.
