The Mississippi State art department’s 43rd Student Juried Exhibition opens Friday [March 20] at the university’s McComas Hall Art Gallery.

Free to all, the ground-floor exhibition through April 15 features more than 170 works.

A public reception for the exhibitors will be held 5-6 p.m. on March 26 in the same location. Light refreshments will be provided.

First-, second- and third-place prizes will be presented in both fine art and graphic design categories. Many of the students’ works will be available for purchase.

Fine art and graphic design judges for this semester’s exhibition were, respectively, Kevin O’Brien, executive director of Biloxi’s Ohr-O’Keefe Museum of Art, and Kristin Moses, founder and creative director of the DesignGood+DesignGood Studio in Austin, Texas.

MSU’s art department is part of the College of Architecture, Art and Design. The McComas art gallery is among several departmental venues regularly featuring traveling exhibits, student shows, and group and solo exhibitions by professional artists.

Regular gallery hours are 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Friday, as well as by appointment.
