Juried Student Art Exhibit Set

By Molly Exner
UW-RF News Bureau

APRIL 8, 2005--The UW-River Falls Art Department presents the 2005 Juried Student Exhibition in Gallery 101 of the Kleinpell Fine Arts Building, from April 22 to May 6.

For almost 30 years, the Juried Student Exhibition has been a favorite tradition among art students. Each year students may enter a variety of work from ceramics, computer design, drawing, fibers, glass, jewelry/metals, painting, photography and printmaking.

This year, invited juror Ann Pifer, owner of Grand Hand Gallery in St. Paul, Minn., will select an exhibition from students’ entries and hold an informal discussion with the students about her choices. Plus, Pifer will award honors to students for specific work.

The Grand Hand Gallery is known as the Twin Cities only gallery of fine American craft. The artwork featured in the gallery reflects Pifer's particular affinity for work that conveys a strong sense of authenticity that shows "the hand of the maker" at work; the processes used to create each piece; and frequently the influence of the particular time or place in which the artist was working.

The UW-RF exhibition not only showcases the talent of the University's students but also allows them to hear a fresh perspective about their work from an experienced artist and art dealer.

Gallery hours are Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and 7 to 9 p.m., and Sundays 2 to 4 p.m. For more information, please contact the art department at 715/425-3266.
