A total of 39 works are featured in the UT Department of Art’s Annual Juried Student Exhibition in the Center for the Visual Arts Gallery on the Toledo Museum of Art Campus.

A selection committee of 14 art faculty members reviewed 153 pieces submitted by undergraduate, graduate and post-baccalaureate students.

“The artworks selected for inclusion in the exhibition testify to the rich talents and diverse visions of UT students working across a broad range of media,” said Ben Pond, UT lecturer of art and gallery director.

There will be an artists’ reception and lecture presented by juror Amy Horst Friday, March 16, at 6 p.m. in the Center for the Visual Arts Gallery. She also will present awards to winning artists at the event.

Horst directs the Education and Community Arts Department at the John Michael Kohler Arts Center in Sheboygan, Wis., where she creates programs and curates exhibitions and projects that engage artists and the public in innovative ways.

The free, public exhibition is on display through Sunday, April 1. Gallery hours are Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.
