The Gallery of Contemporary Art will host the opening of the 2005 Student Art Exhibition with a public reception on Friday, April 8, 2005 from 5:00 – 7:30 pm. The exhibitions include the juried 2005 Student Art Exhibition at the Gallery of Contemporary Art, a university art museum, and the Salon des Refuses at the University Center. Both shows will continue on view at these adjacent locations through June 2, 2006 durring regularly scheduled hours.

Submissions for these annual shows are open to any UCCS student presently enrolled, or enrolled durring the Fall 2004 semester. These exhibits are intriguing as they include a broad range of experimental work executed by UCCS students in virtually all art media. The museum show is often the first opportunity for emerging artists to exhibit work in a museum setting. These annual shows also provide a ready means for the art going public to spot potential talent and to aquire origional art inexpensively before an artist’s career is established.

Jurors for this year’s museum show include Daisy McConnell, local artist and Director of Colorado College’s Coborn Gallery: and Malcolm McCollum, local writer, poet and artist, and a DeVry University Humanities and English Instructor, Malcolm previously taught at Pikes Peak Community College’s Downtown Studio and helped to operate that location’s art gallery. Both jurors are well known to the local art scene.
