The Stamps School’s annual Under­grad­u­ate Juried Exhi­bi­tion, a show­case of the best work pro­duced by Stamps under­grad­u­ate stu­dents, is on view from Novem­ber 30, 2018-Jan­u­ary 6, 2019 at Stamps Gallery.

A highly antic­i­pated Stamps School tra­di­tion, the Under­grad­u­ate Juried Exhi­bi­tion pro­vides an oppor­tu­nity for the school to sup­port stu­dents whose cre­ative work is rec­og­nized as excep­tional by invited jurors, with thou­sands of dol­lars in awards announced at the exhi­bi­tion recep­tion: Fri­day, Novem­ber 30 from 6 – 8 pm.

On Sat­ur­day, Decem­ber 1 from 2 – 4pm, join exhi­bi­tion jurors and stu­dents for an exhi­bi­tion walk-through. In this pub­lic dis­cus­sion, jurors will share how and why they selected the award win­ning art­works and stu­dents will offer more insight into their work.
