The School of Art at Bowling Green State University's annual Undergraduate Art and Design Exhibition opens Sunday in the Dorothy Uber Bryan and Willard Wankleman galleries in the Fine Arts Center.
Faculty selected the 230 pieces in 11 media categories for the exhibition from more than 400 entered, and will also select scholarship award winners.
The opening reception and awards presentation will be Sunday from 2 to 4 p.m.. The show continues through Feb. 23. Gallery hours are 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday-Saturday; 6-9 p.m. Thursdays; and 1-4 p.m. Sundays.
Preceding the reception will be an ARTalk "The Dream Is Real" by painter and BGSU alumna Amy Ringholz, at 1 p.m. in 204 Fines Arts Center. Her talk will focus on her experiences after college and 22 lessons she learned throughout her journey, as well as her thoughts on being successful in the art industry.
Ringholz earned her bachelor of fine arts degree in drawing from the School of Art. In 2012, she became the youngest Featured Artist for the Jackson Hole Fall Arts Festival, and the first woman to receive the honor in 13 years.
As a way to encourage other artists, Ringholz launched The Ringholz Foundation, which awards financial assistance to art students who display talent, hard work and heart. Two of these awards will be awarded during the exhibition.
