The Studio Art Program and the Fine Arts Department at the University of South Carolina Beaufort will present the 19th Annual Student Exhibition beginning April 15 at the Sea Islands Center Gallery on the university’s Historic Beaufort campus.

The exhibition, intended as a showcase for the work of USCB’s studio art students, will open with a public reception on April 15 from 5:30 to 7 p.m. The students’ artwork, representing various media, will be on display through April 30. The exhibition is free and open to the public. Gallery hours are Thursday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. or by appointment. USCB’s Studio Art Program seeks to showcase exemplary artistic achievements from students majoring, minoring or participating in a Studio Art course. This show is juried and will feature artworks selected for the exhibition by this year’s juror, Greg Eltringham, professor of Painting at the Savannah College of Art  and Design.

Members of the university’s Studio Art faculty will attend the exhibition and be available to meet with parents and art patrons. USCB’s Studio Art degree program provides graduates with a comprehensive background in the theory and practice of studio art. The program builds upon a solid foundation in art history offered within the context of a liberal arts education. It prepares graduates for a professional career in the arts or for a graduate program in fine arts.
