The Department of Art and Art History's 2013 BFA Juried Exhibition opens Thursday, April 25, and runs through May 18, at the Harrison Galleries, 2315 University Boulevard, in downtown Tuscaloosa. The public is invited to a reception for the exhibitors on Thursday, May 2, Art Night, 5:00 – 9:00 pm. Faculty coordinator Professor Pete Schulte said, “From traditional works on paper and canvas to experiments in video and performance, the 2013 BFA Juried Exhibition seeks to give students the chance to exhibit their work while still in school, rather than at the end of their tenure. This cross section of work also provides viewers with a unique opportunity to take the pulse of a variety of contemporary art practices, as well as that of some of the most creative students at The University of Alabama.” All UA undergraduate art majors who passed the review for the Bachelor of Fine Arts degree were eligible to enter the competition, juried by the department faculty. Exhibitors in the juried show are Bachelor of Fine Arts majors Elizabeth Alexander, Ben Bailey, Emee Barrow, Yimin Li, Michael Meads, Eric Nubbe, Greg Randall, Carmen Rice, Kristen Tcherneshoff, Rachel Wakefield, Joi West, and Kacie Willings.
