Juried Student Show opens tonight

The annual NMSU Juried Student Show opens this evening at the University Art Gallery on campus. The opening reception is set for 5:30 p.m.

Both undergraduate and graduate students in any major were allowed to submit up to three art pieces completed within the past 15 months. In all, the show will feature 41 individual works of art.

NMSU senior Trey Broomfield is one of the artists whose work will be featured in the show. “I’m feeling very excited. A little nervous, too, but mostly excited,” Broomfield said. As a senior, Broomfield considers this a starting point for his career in the art field.

The show itself is free and open to the public, allowing community members a chance to come by and view what NMSU students are creating.

“There’s a lot of good work in the show and I’m really looking forward to [the opening],” Broomfield said.

The exhibit will run through April 6, 2019. The gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.
