April 09, 2013

The annual Kathryn E. Wentz Juried Undergraduate Exhibition at McDaniel College highlights the best artwork by students. The exhibition runs April 9-19, with an opening reception 7-9 p.m. April 9, in Rice Gallery, Peterson Hall.

All students in the college’s department of Art and Art History are invited to submit up to five pieces of art that they have done while studying at McDaniel for inclusion in the exhibition.

Juror for the exhibition is award-winning artist René Trevino, exhibitions coordinator at School 33 Art Center in Baltimore, who will announce the eight award winners for Best in Show, First, Second, and Third places, three honorable mentions, and a Foundations Award that is open to work done in Drawing One (Perceptual Drawing and Design) during the opening reception.

Trevino’s artwork examines his identity as an underrepresented minority and has been exhibited in solo and group shows throughout the Baltimore/Washington, D.C., area, including the Baltimore Museum of Art, in addition to the Wadsworth Athenaeum in Hartford, Conn., Goliath Visual Space and White Box in New York, and Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown, Mass.

The exhibition and reception are both free and open to the public. Rice Gallery hours are noon-4 p.m. Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday; noon-8 p.m. Thursday and noon-5 p.m. Saturday. Call 410-857-2595 for more information.
