Hastings College students get creative in student art show
HASTINGS, Neb. — Hastings College students are getting in touch with their creative side with the college's student art show.
Students across campus including non-art majors submitted artwork for the exhibition.
Out of about 200 works of art, 34 pieces were selected.
The juror of the exhibition was Andy Smith who is the studio programs manager at the Joslyn Museum in Omaha.
The pieces are being shown at the Jackson Dinsdale Art Center.
Kevin Mercer, who is the gallery director at Hastings College said the exhibition is a big deal for students.
"Applying to an exhibition can be sometimes scary because we don't know if we're going to get in, we don't know if we're going to be awarded in sort of prize but that risk is so important sort of creatively and professionally," said Mercer.
The exhibition will be shown until February 26th.
The Jackson Dinsdale Art Center gallery is open Monday-Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
The viewing is free and open to the public.
