ONU to present student art exhibition

The Ohio Northern University Department of Art and Design will hold its annual Student Juried Art and Design Exhibition in the Elzay Gallery of Art from Dec. 1-9.  A public reception and awards presentation will be held Sunday, Dec. 2, from 2-4 p.m.

For many years, a committee of sophomore art and design majors has been responsible for organizing and presenting the show, traditionally the most popular gallery event of the academic year.

This year’s exhibition features original work in a variety of media, such as ceramics, oils and watercolors, photographs, graphic design, drawings, sculpture, mixed media, and printmaking.

The exhibition is a competition open to any undergraduate student enrolled at Ohio Northern University. Any work completed for an art and design departmental course is eligible for consideration.

Submissions fall into three categories: two-dimensional, three-dimensional and graphic design.

Invited jurors review the submitted entries and make the final selections. This year’s jurors were retired professors Judith Greavu and Bruce Chesser.

Greavu was an associate professor in ONU’s Department of Art and Design from 1985-2005, and Chesser taught ceramics at ONU for more than 30 years.

Admission to the Elzay Gallery of Art is free and open to the public, daily from noon to 5 p.m. while school is in session.
