The artwork of undergraduate students from Kent State University and University of Akron’s School of Art brighten the walls of the historic Andrew Jackson House, home to GAR’s offices from February-November. GAR celebrates the students and their work each year at a reception.
About the 2017 exhibition
This year’s talented curator, Lindsey James, a graduate student specializing in Fine Art and Textiles and Library and Information Sciences in Museum Studies from Kent State, selected 28 works of art. Eight students representing The University of Akron and 20 students representing Kent State University were selected.
The selection process and goal for this year’s GAR Annual Art Show was to be as diverse as possible, showing a wide array of two-dimensional works in drawing, painting, printing, digital, and mixed media. With the addition of a glass display case, this year’s show has made room for three-dimensional works such as glass, ceramics, metals and jewelry; making for an all-encompassing studio arts show representative of the school of art programs at University of Akron and Kent State University.
The 2017 exhibition has ended. Stay tuned for a fresh batch of artwork in 2018!
