For the month of March, Hastings College student artwork will be featured in the Jackson Dinsdale Art Center gallery. Students from across campus were invited to submit their work in a variety of mediums for the Juried Student Exhibition.
This year’s open show for students was curated by Mychaelyn Michalec, an artist whose work depicts ultramodern matters of domestic life. Her work has been exhibited internationally and is currently being shown in many places; Femme Maison at House Guest Gallery in Louisville, Kentucky; I Do Not Ask Any More Delight at Quappi Projects in Louisville; and Tuft at Group Projects in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
Michalec will give a demonstration and talk on Friday, March 6, at 4:00 p.m. in the Jackson Dinsdale Art Center Room 101 (700 East 12th Street). The event is free and open to the public.
Hastings College students submitted 63 works for this year’s open show, and 21 were selected by Michalec. Awards for the show will be announced during a 2:00 p.m. reception in the JDAC on Sunday, March 29. The reception is open to the public.
