March 30, 2022 (Jackson, Miss.) - The 2022 Annual Student Art and Design 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 curated by faculty, and it highlights a wide range of styles and media including drawing, painting, photography, printmaking, sculpture, and mixed media. None of the work included in this show was made for a class, but instead reflects the vision and expertise developed by each student as they pursue their various disciplines.
The opening reception for the 2022 Annual Student Art and Design Exhibition is April 9, 2 p.m. - 4 p.m. in the Bitsy Irby Visual Arts and Dance Center Gallery.
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.
The exhibition is open to the public and will be on display April 9-30. 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.
