Interested in seeing recently created artwork while sipping on light refreshments? The All Student Art Show’s opening reception will be held April 17 from 7:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. in the Viterbo University Gallery on the third floor of the Fine Arts Center.
“Anyone is allowed to visit our gallery, and every student is allowed to submit artwork to the show, regardless of major,” said Joseph Miller, assistant professor of art. “The show runs April 17 – May 10, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. during the week while classes are in session.”
“Throughout the year, the gallery features the work of students and faculty, as well as the work of regionally and nationally known artists and graphic designers,” according to the Viterbo University gallery’s website.
“Students and faculty should consider attending the All Student Art Show to see and explore the wonderful artwork that is being made by students and faculty at Viterbo,” Miller said. “Students and faculty will have the opportunity to connect with artists, designers and art faculty at the reception.”
In addition to this year’s art show, the art department will also be self-publishing a second edition of the All Student Show catalog, which features work from the exhibit. “We produce an edition of 50 catalogs,” Miller told Lumen. “Each student participant receives a copy and dedicated art students help edit, photograph, design, print and bind this edition. All production is done in-house.”
Non-student participants can also purchase a copy of the All Student Show catalog, either in person or through shipping. “Shipping is free, and all proceeds will go to future All Student Show catalog publications,” said Miller.
Selections from the All Student Art Show will also be available on the art department’s blog at http://viterbo-art.blogspot.com/. The current blog features selec¬tions and information from the 2012 show, including a video tour of the Viterbo University Gallery, along with several short films and a full length documentary by Jasper Duberry.
“Duberry was featured on La Crosse’s Channel 19 TV talking about the 2012 show, and the YouTube video of this interview can be found on the department’s blog as well,” Miller said.
