The 2017 Armstrong Student Juried Art Exhibition opened on January 30 and will run until February 10. The exhibition will be held at Armstrong’s main campus in the Fine Arts Gallery. Armstrong Art program students shine in this annual competitive exhibition that features categories in various media including sculpture, photography, graphic design, ceramics, drawing, painting, printmaking, jewelry, fabric design, digital photography, and mixed media.
All students participating have passed the first step of the juried process, which consists of a judge reviewing digital artwork submissions and selecting works to be featured in the show. The second step will commence at the gallery reception at noon on Wednesday, February 8th. The judge will jury the selected works in person for awards and present them during the exhibition reception.
The Savannah Tribune’s own graphic designer, Tirany Reeves, will be featured in this art exhibition for her graphic illustration
“Evolution Through Memories 1.” This particular piece shows the evolution of the artist as a child in three stages by choosing particular memories to illustrate. The second part of this series, “Evolution Through Memories 2,” shows the artist looking back at those memories to watch the journey of how she became herself. The two are usually displayed as a diptych–two panels displayed together.
This event is free and open to the public. Join the artists at the reception to find out which works will win the top prizes. The Fine Arts Gallery is open on weekdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information call (912) 344-2801 between the hours of noon and 3 p.m.
