  DSU Arts Center/Gallery hosts Student Honors Show

The DSU Department of Art is currently presenting its annual Student Honor Exhibition until April 13 in the Arts Center Gallery located just off the inside lobby of the William C. Jason Library on campus.

Subin Huang and art 300.jpgSubin Huang, a Chinese exchange student, shows she has assimilated well in the DSU art community, as her "Purple and Green" is one of several of her works that have been included in the current exhibition.

The exhibition – which can be seen daily from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. – is free and open to the public.

The 78-piece Student Honors Exhibition features the artwork of 33 DSU art students. For senior art management major Minnie Leggett, it has given her an opportunity to use the exhibition as her artistic swan song.

Ms. Leggett, of Bear, Del., has five oil paintings in the show. She said that while her aspiration is to use her degree in art management to work at a gallery or museum, her experience at DSU has developed a growing love for painting.

“If I have it my way, I will have my job (in a gallery or museum) and still paint,” Ms. Leggett said. She added that she is also exploring the possibility of going to graduate school.

The diverse exhibition features the works of 33 students – which even includes the art of an exchange student from China, Subin Huang.

The featured works were selected through a double jury process and represent the various studio coursework offered in the DSU Department of Art. Department faculty will select several top honor awards that will represent the best in specific medium categories.

The awards will be announced during a reception that will be held in honor of the exhibition from 4:30-6:30 p.m. Thursday, April 12 in the Arts Center/Gallery. The reception is also free and open to the public.
