Austin Peay State University’s Department of Art is proud to host its annual juried student exhibition in the Trahern Gallery from March 30 through April 17. As the tradition of showcasing the artistic talents of the Austin Peay students enters its 47th year, this exhibition rounds out what has been an exciting 2014-2015 gallery season.

This year’s juror, Christopher Taylor, from the University of Alabama Huntsville, had his work cut out for him as there were 221 entries in this year’s exhibition.

“The body of work selected for this year’s show attempts to represent this experience and uniquely represents the student-artists at Austin Peay State University who have pushed their concepts throughout all levels,” Taylor said. He selected 46 pieces from 34 different students. “It was a real pleasure to experience this quality student artwork…work that represents a positive trajectory toward an exciting future for these students and the institution.”

An opening reception will be held from 5-7 p.m. on Thursday, April 2. Exhibition awards will be announced and scholarship recipients will be recognized beginning at 5:30 p.m.

Among the exhibition awards from the University and the Center of Excellence for the Creative Arts, the Department of Art would also like to thank The Framemaker, Plaza Art Supplies, The Customs House Museum, The Frist Center for the Visual Arts and Cheekwood Botanical Garden and Museum of Art for additional cash awards and memberships.
