HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

The following is a news release from The university of Southern Mississippi

More than 100 works will be featured during the 2016 Annual Student Show set for March 23-April 8 at the Gallery of Art and Design on The University of Southern Mississippi’s Hattiesburg campus.

The media on display include: drawing, painting, printmaking, ceramics, sculpture, foundations projects, graphic design, web design and more.

The show begins with an awards reception from 5-7 p.m. on Wednesday, March 23 and concludes with an evening of art, music and poetry at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, April 8.

“This exhibition shows the creativity and visual problem solving skills of our very innovative students,” said Dr. Howard Paine, chair and associate professor in the Department of Art and Design. “At the core, an art work is a demonstration of the human condition and a snapshot of a culture at a particular moment in time. I believe that this exhibition demonstrates the strong work being produced in the Department of Art and Design. The works are thought-provoking, beautiful, and enjoyable to experience.”

Three jurors helped with the selection process for the show: Jeff Jones, graphic design instructor, Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College; Earnest Milsted, associate professor printmaking, Southeastern Louisiana University; Dennis Sipiorski, professor of ceramics, Southeastern Louisiana University.

The Gallery of Art and Design is located in the George Hurst Building. For more information, call 601.266.6389 or visit: http://www.usm.edu/visual-arts
