CSUN Art Galleries to Showcase Student Art

Annual Juried Art Student Exhibition - first sampleThe Art Galleries at California State University, Northridge will showcase the talents of the university’s students at CSUN’s Annual Juried Student Art Exhibition which opens April 14 and runs through May 16.

The annual show features work by graduate and undergraduate students in all media of the visual arts, including animation, ceramic, drawing, graphic design, illustration, painting, photography, printmaking, sculpture, website design, and video.

The students submitted up to three art pieces created within the past year. Various art experts from outside the university served as “jurors,” evaluating the entries and choosing 60 to 70 pieces for this year’s exhibition.

The show is the year-end culminating event for both the Department of Art and the Art Galleries. Cash prizes will be awarded to students at a reception scheduled for Friday April 18, from 7 to 9 p.m. A gallery talk will also be taking place Monday April 21, at 10 a.m.

The main gallery is located in the Art and Design Center located on North University Drive, and is open Monday through Saturday noon to 4 p.m. and Thursdays noon to 8 p.m. To contact the gallery office or to schedule group tours, call (818) 677- 2156.
