The Grand Valley Department of Art and Design is hosting their first Juried Student Art Show, with cash prizes and judging by professional artists from a variety of teaching institutions. The exhibition will be ongoing through March 28.

Students were able to enter artwork from the past two years of classes in the Department of Art and Design and the School of Communications. Entries were judged by three artists from different teaching institutions: Johanna Pass, associate professor at Central Michigan University, Kate Silvio, a teacher at the Kendall College of Art and Design, in Grand Rapids, and Mike Rebholz, a photographer and teacher from Madison, Wisconsin.

Showcase categories include ceramics, graphic designs, paintings, sculptures, drawings, illustrations, photographs, mixed media and electronic works, film and video, metals and printmaking. Two Purchase Award winners, Ashley Umstead and Rachel Marcincavage, each received $300 and will have their work on permanent display at Grand Valley. Ariana Ortega won the $150 Faculty/Staff Award for a student in the Art and Design Department. Additionally, there was one honorable mention for each category.

The exhibition is open to the public with free admission. For more information, contact Bill Hosterman in the Department of Art and Design at
