The Stamps School’s annual Under­grad­u­ate Juried Exhi­bi­tion, a show­case of the best work pro­duced by Stamps under­grad­u­ate stu­dents, is on view from Novem­ber 22 — Decem­ber 15, 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 awards announced at the exhi­bi­tion recep­tion: Fri­day, Novem­ber 22, from 6 – 8 pm.

On Novem­ber 23 from 2 – 4 pm, join award-win­ning stu­dents from the Under­grad­u­ate Juried Exhi­bi­tion as they dis­cuss their work.
