The Juried Student Show will feature 41 individual pieces of work from both undergraduate and graduate students at the university. The pieces were chosen from a wide range of artwork submitted from various majors all across the NMSU campus.

Artists Andy Arkley and Julie Alpert served as the jurors for this year’s show. The pair are fresh off the spring exhibition of their own show, “Light Tricks,” which ran at the University Art Gallery from Jan. 31 until March 2.

This year’s Juried Student Show will serve as the final juried exhibition at the NMSU Art Gallery’s current home inside D.W. Williams Hall, before the gallery transitions over to the newly built Devasthali Hall in 2020.

The Juried Student Show will be on view at the University Art Gallery from March 14 to April 6. Admission to both the gallery and opening reception on March 14 will be free and open to the public. An award ceremony at 6 p.m. is also slated to take place during the opening reception.

The University Art Gallery at NMSU is located at 1390 E. University Avenue, in D.W. Williams Hall at the intersection of East University Ave. and South Solano Drive. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Designated gallery parking is available, and general parking on the NMSU campus is free on weekends and after 4:30 p.m. on weekdays.
