Developing the Imagination: ULM Hosts High School Juried Art Exhibition


The Bry Art Gallery at the University of Louisiana at Monroe is currently hosting the 22nd Annual High School Junior/Senior Juried Art Exhibition. The show will run Monday through Thursday 8 a.m.-4:30p.m., and Friday from 8 a.m.-noon beginning February 23. Exhibits will remain open through March 18.

Northern Louisiana high school art students were eligible to submit examples of their studio art endeavors, which were judged by ULM art faculty members based on creativity and mastery of the student’s chosen medium.

"Art classes are one of the few places in the high school curriculum where students are encouraged to think outside of the box and develop non-linear thinking skills," said Dr. Joni Noble, associate professor of Art. "The work of high school students and their teachers deserves this recognition."

An awards ceremony and reception will be held Thursday, February 26 at 5:30 p.m. at the gallery.
