(Posted March 8, 2004)
HUNTINGDON, Pa. -- Juniata College students in the fine arts program will exhibit art in a variety of media -- paintings, prints, photographs, ceramics and computer art -- at the Juniata College Museum of Art from Friday, March 19 to April 10.
There is an opening reception at the museum from 5 to 6:30 p.m., Friday, March 19. The reception and continuing exhibition is free and open to the public.
The exhibit will feature more than two dozen works made by Juniata students during the 2003-2004 academic year. The works on display were created in art classes supervised by Alexander McBride, professor of art, and Jack Troy, associate professor of art.
?The spring student show is a golden opportunity for students to see how their work is perceived by the public,? says Nancy Siegel, assistant professor of art history and director of the museum. ?By giving student artists the opportunity to exhibit in a museum gallery, it enriches their experience as well as providing a cultural experience for students, faculty and the Huntingdon community.?
The museum is located in historic Carnegie Hall at 17th and Moore streets in Huntingdon. Museum hours are Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Saturday, noon to 4 p.m. For more information, please call the museum at (814) 641-3505, or visit the Juniata College Web site at http://www.juniata.edu/museum.
