March 12, 2018

The University of Montana Western’s Fine Arts Gallery is currently exhibiting the work of Montana Western students in a wide range of styles and mediums.

Student Art Exhibit

The following student artists have been selected for the exhibit:

Breana Barrios, Jonathan Bell, Sharon Bray, Samara Brunet, Loney Cox, Sam Dent, Mackenzie Duncan, Sarrah Eberley, María B. Gallegos, Sabrina Hanson, Madeline Hogan, Trais Hoisington, Kiarra Johnson, Laura Latray, Renata Miller, A.C. Reyes, Wyatt Sarrazin, Mary Weber, Kelly Wieman and Augustina Wofford.

The student exhibit will run until March 23, 2018, and the gallery hours will be Wednesday-Friday 10:00 am-12:00 pm and 1:00-3:00 pm.

On March 22, 2018, there will be a closing reception in the gallery from 5:30-7:00 pm, featuring a talk from the curator and the announcement of prizes at 6:00 pm. The community is invited to join in the celebration of these student artists and their creative works.

On the exhibition, Assistant Professor of Art and Fine Arts Gallery Coordinator Aja Mujinga Sherrard said, “Selected and curated by a secret guest juror, this show showcases artwork made by student artists here at the University of Montana Western. In particular, it showcases student experimentation: featuring a range of skill and experience, from first-time art students taking a bold new leap into visual language to more advanced students refining their technique and ideas. The show highlights the rapid energy and potential of college art; ultimately posing more questions than it answers and inviting our students to never stop doing the same.”

In addition, the gallery’s permanent collection is now presenting four prints from renowned photographer Ansel Adams from his Manzanar Relocation Center, California series: “Farm Workers”,  “Monument in Cemetery”,  “Tom Kobayashi and Landscape”, and “Calisthenics.”

The closing reception of the Student Art Exhibit will be free and open to the public, and complimentary coffee, cider, and cookies will be served. The Gallery is located at the South end of Main Hall.
