The exhibition features art works created by 16 talented students in the Department of Art and Design at Purdue University Fort Wayne. Forty-four Art and Design students, freshman through senior, applied to the call for entry and submitted more than 110 entries. Professor of Art Sally Van Orden, from West Chester University in Pennsylvania, juried the exhibition and selected 21 works that were submitted representing the disciplines of ceramics, drawing, painting, photography, and printmaking.

“Each work was assessed for the overall use of principles and design including composition, craftsmanship, technique, and originality,” explained Van Orden in her juror’s statement. “I believe viewers of this exhibition will experience a well-rounded show that explores a variety of media, process, and concept. Overall, there were many unique and creative results from those submitted and students can be very proud of their accomplishments.”

Van Orden awarded a best of show, first, second, and third place awards, along with two honorable mentions. Visitors to the gallery space since Feb. 15 voted for the People’s Choice Award.
