The Rosemary Berkel and Harry L. Crisp II Museum at Southeast Missouri State University’s
River Campus will host the Department of Art’s Annual Juried Student Exhibition opening
The public is invited to attend the opening reception for the artists from 4 to 8 p.m. on Friday, March 30. The event is free. Refreshments will be served. Awards will be presented in the following categories: 2D Color/Design Foundations, 3D Foundations, Graphic Design/Illustration, Digital Arts, Ceramics, Fibers, Printmaking, Painting, Drawing and New Genre. Best in Show, Distinguished Merit Award, Area Merit Award and Purchase Awards also will be presented.
This is a significant show for Southeast students, showcasing selected works that have been created within the past year. Many of the works on view will be available for purchase.
This year’s juror is fiber artist Becky Grass, who holds a master of fine arts from Southern Illinois University Edwardsville and her BFA from Southeast Missouri State University. Grass specializes in creating hand woven, hand-dyed fabrics although her passion for textiles spreads into the realms of felt making, surface design, bookbinding and sewing. She chooses the medium of cloth for her creative explorations both because of its traditions in history and also its relevance as a tactile part of everyday life.
The museum is located in the Cultural Arts Center at the River Campus, located at 518 S. Fountain Street in Cape Girardeau. Museum hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday-Friday and 1 to 4 p.m. on weekends.
