Artists from Kent State University and The University of Akron were recognized at the GAR Annual Student Art Exhibition on February 28, 2015
 
GAR Foundation celebrated its sixth Annual Student Art Exhibition on February 28, featuring works by undergraduate students from Kent State University’s School of Art and The University of Akron’s Myers School of Art.
 
This year’s talented curator, Zach Wollert, a graduate student specializing in ceramics from Kent State, selected 23 works out of 191 submissions of art that represent a diverse range of artistic mediums to brighten the walls of the Andrew Jackson House, home to GAR’s offices.
 
Nine students representing The University of Akron and 14 students representing Kent State University were selected. 
 
The selection process and goal for this year’s GAR 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.
 
 A photograph called Untitled by artist Shawn Campbell from The University of Akron won GAR’s staff pick and will have a permanent home in the Andrew Jackson House.
