More than 50 student artworks selected by a professional artist are currently on display in the Gaddis Geeslin Gallery as part of the 14th annual Student Juried Exhibition.
The exhibition, which includes works selected by guest juror Dario Robleto, who chose the winning pieces from more than 100 student submissions, will be on display through Thursday (April 18).
Those eight winners will be announced on April 18 at 5 p.m. in Art Building E Room 108, followed by the exhibit’s closing reception in the Gaddis Geeslin Gallery.
“The exhibit includes works in a variety of media and from various areas of the department including studio art, photography, animation and graphic design,” said Annie Strader, assistant professor of art and Gaddis Geeslin Gallery committee chair. “Robleto was impressed with the quality of student work and spent many hours making the final decisions.”
A San Antonio native currently residing in Houston, Robleto is a multi-media artist whose works have been featured extensively at museums such as the Whitney Museum of American Art at Altria, N.Y.; the Museum of Contemporary Art in San Diego; the Museum of Contemporary Art in Denver; and the Aldrich Contemporary Arts Museum in Ridgefield, Conn.
He also is a recent fellow at the Smithsonian’s Museum of American History in Washington, D.C.
Robleto received his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of Texas at San Antonio in 1997.
The Gaddis Geeslin Gallery is located in Art Building F. It is open Monday through Friday from noon to 5 p.m.
