Southeast Student Artwork Featured in Salon des Refusés


EVT-TransitionSpacesCAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo., March 21, 2016 – The Southeast Missouri State University River Campus Art Gallery will continue the successful “Salon des Refusés” tradition with its most recent exhibit, featuring a variety of original Southeast student artwork.

The exhibit opens with a reception from 5-7 p.m. April 1 and will remain on display until April 14.

The “Salon des Refusés” runs concurrently with the Annual Juried Student Exhibition and features additional work created by Southeast art students. The show will spotlight pieces from fibers, sculpture, drawing, painting, printmaking, ceramics, graphic design, illustration, digital art and photo and video projects.

“This exhibition provides students with an opportunity to exhibit artwork that was not selected by the juror for the Annual Student Exhibition held in the Crisp Museum,” said Justin Miller, Gallery coordinator. “It consistently proves to be a dynamic and diverse show which is a testament to the quality of artwork produced by students in the Department of Art.”

Works from more than 30 student artists will be featured in the show.

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 Justin Miller at or (573) 651-2865.
