Undergraduate Art Exhibition Opens in Curfman Gallery

Colorado State University’s Curfman Gallery will kick off its annual celebration of undergraduate achievement in the visual arts with an opening reception and awards presentation at the 2007 Undergraduate Visual Arts Exhibition from 4-6 p.m. March 30.

This juried exhibition, which runs through May 11, features artwork in various forms, from photography to sculpture to multi-media.  The goal of the jurors is to choose a variety of artwork that represents the best Colorado State has to offer. The opening reception will include a brief awards presentation for those works honored with marks of high distinction.

The only exhibition of its kind on campus, the show is part of Colorado State’s Celebrate Undergraduate Research & Creativity efforts. The show is one of the most popular exhibits, with more than 300 student artists submitting work. Only about 70 pieces are selected for the show.

"Being on campus gives students an excellent opportunity to enter their work into a juried competition and to display their work in a professional gallery setting," said gallery director Stan Scott. "This makes for a great learning experience for students, many of whom will be entering their work professionally for the first time. The undergraduate exhibit is not just for art students, but for everyone in the community, serving as a sneak peak to what is happening in the arts at Colorado State."

The Curfman Gallery is located on the south end of the main level in the Lory Student Center. Gallery hours are 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 9 a.m – 9:30 p.m. Friday and noon – 4 p.m. Saturday.

For questions or to request photography of a piece from the exhibit please contact Stan Scott at (970) 491-2810 or e-mail lscarts2@lamar.colostate.edu. Information about the exhibit and the gallery, including a parking map, can be found at www.curfman.colostate.edu.
