Saginaw Valley State University is hosting its annual Art Alumni Show featuring the artistic creations of 27 alumni with arts-related bachelor's degrees.
SVSU's University Art Gallery opened the exhibition today. The exhibition will remain in place until Wednesday, Oct. 31. A reception for the featured artists is planned for Thursday, Oct. 18 from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.
The Art Alumni Show and its reception are free and open to the public.
Tisch Lewis, coordinator of the University Art Gallery, said the show offers the public a chance to have a new appreciation and understanding of art professions.
"Art students are diverse and able to do anything," she said. "A lot of our alumni are professionally working in the art field. It is confirmation for our students that they are on the right track."
Artwork featured at the show includes photography, paintings, drawings, sculptures, ceramics, printmaking and graphic design pieces.
The University Art Gallery is located in Arbury Fine Arts Center at SVSU. The gallery is open Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.; Thursdays from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.; and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The gallery is closed Sundays.
