The Gallery of Contemporary Art will host the opening of the 2006 Student Art Exhibition with a public reception on Friday, April 7, 2006 from 5:30 – 8:00 pm. The exhibitions include the juried 2006 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 during regularly scheduled hours.

Submissions for these annual shows are open to any UCCS student presently enrolled, or enrolled durring the Fall 2005 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 show include Jina Pierce, Curator of visual arts for the Sangre de Christo Art Center in Pueblo, Tim Davis a local artist, and Rian Kerrane proffesor of sculpture at the University of Colorado Denver. All three jurors are well known in the local art scene.
