“Works in Progress” provides an opportunity for students from several disciplines to present their work to other students, faculty and the public.

The exhibition, which will remain on display through Feb. 27, will simulate the types of presentations students will make in their professional careers. Hand will present a curator’s talk from 4-5 p.m. Feb. 7. A reception will follow from 5-7 p.m. Student presentations will take place from noon to 1 p.m. Feb. 5, 12, 19 and 26.

“The Department rotates this opportunity through our faculty to either curate an exhibition or to show their own work,” says Kristin Powers Nowlin, Gallery coordinator. “This year, Joni Hand, our assistant professor of art history, pulled together a works in progress exhibition that features work by students from across campus, not just the art department. It is a unique exhibit that will also allow the exhibitors to speak about their work each Wednesday at noon in the Gallery.”

The River Campus Art Gallery is located on the first floor of the historic Seminary Building in Room 106.

River Campus Art Gallery hours are 1-5 p.m. Monday through Friday and 1-7 p.m. on First Fridays. All gallery exhibitions, events and talks are free and open to the public. For more information, contact Gallery Coordinator Kristin Powers Nowlin at kpnowlin@semo.edu or (573) 651-5901.
