2015 Annual BFA Juried Exhibition, March 6 – April 3
The University of Alabama Gallery, Dinah Washington Cultural Arts Center, 620 Greensboro Avenue, Tuscaloosa
Opening Reception: Friday, March 6, 5:30-7:30 p.m.
The University of Alabama Department of Art and Art History is pleased announce its 2015 Annual BFA Juried Exhibition opening at The University of Alabama Gallery in the Dinah Washington Cultural Arts Center in Tuscaloosa, March 6, with a public reception in the gallery beginning at 5:30 p.m.
The exhibition, which runs from March 6 to April 3, features Bachelor of Fine Arts candidates whose work has been selected by faculty jurors. All UA undergraduate art majors who passed the review for the Bachelor of Fine Arts degree were eligible to enter the competition, juried by a committee comprised of UA studio faculty. Exhibitors in the juried show are Bachelor of Fine Arts majors Ausharea Adams, Jenna Cape, Meg Howton, Ali Hval, Ali Jackson, Tanika Powers, and Kelsey White.
Faculty coordinator and Assistant Professor Pete Schulte said, “The diverse body of work presented in the 2015 edition of the Annual BFA Juried Exhibition represents the most ambitious and informed work being created by undergraduates working toward to a professional arts degree in the studio program at UA.”
The Bachelor of Fine Arts degree is the professional degree for the artist; it is also the foundation for the masters program in studio art at UA. The annual juried event seeks to give BFA students the chance to compete and exhibit their work while still in school, rather than at the end of their tenure, providing art students more opportunities to exhibit and participate in art events before graduation.
