GAR Foundation celebrated its seventh Annual Student Art Exhibition on February 24, 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, Angela Biederman, a graduate student specializing in ceramics from Kent State, selected 22 works out of 127 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.
Six students representing The University of Akron and 16 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.
Nicole Mullet, executive director of ArtsNow demonstrated how to create an artist profile on the new community arts platform, SummitLive365.
