March 26, 2021 (Jackson, Miss.) - The annual Student Invitational Art Exhibition is the centerpiece of the year for Belhaven's Visual Art Department, and showcases a variety of artwork from freshmen to seniors. This annual exhibit is juried and highlights a wide range of styles and media including drawing, painting, photography, printmaking, sculpture and mixed media.
This art exhibition will be on display April 3- May 15 and is open to the public. The Gallery is located in the Bitsy Irby Visual Arts and Dance Center Gallery and hours include Monday - Friday, 10 a.m. - 6 p.m.
Students work hard to have their art selected for the premiere. This unique exhibit is a direct result from the department's practicum period; a part of the year when visual art majors engage in concentrated, individualized pursuits of the art-making process. Practicum helps each student focus on and identify their own unique artistic abilities, while preparing them for a career in the arts.
