Juried Student Galley Exhibition

On Friday February 17th, the University of Nebraska-Omaha showcased the Juried Art Student Exhibition opening event. The show is provided every spring semester for all students to participate in entering. This show provided over 37 student artists that are pursuing a degree in College of Fine Arts and Media. Attending this exhibition, provided not only a wide assortment of classifications of what art is, but rather gave an overall view of how art is interpreted, with showing sculptures, prints, paintings, mixed media materials and digital works.

An interesting aspect that came to mind when walking through the gallery is the connections that you create and the people you get to know. Throughout my years at UNO, I have met new artists, seen their style and their process work in design. What was remarkable, was seeing the development in those pieces and then getting to see the final product in the show.

This event served as an honor not only for my fellow art members in the school, but a proud moment to participate in the gallery with them. I have never had my artwork in a gallery event, so this was pretty impactful accomplishment. It shows that hard work can pay off. Overall, the experience was remarkable, talking with fellow artists and getting to view representation creations.

If you have not checked out the Juried Student Art Exhibition, it is located in the UNO Art Gallery until March 30th. Go check it out and see all the inventive ideas of creation.
