USU Student Artwork to Be Shown in Combined Exhibit at Gallery East

By Marcus Jensen |

PRICE, Utah — A collaborative exhibition of Utah State University student artwork from the Logan, Blanding and Price campuses will be on view at Gallery East in Price from March 4-29. The exhibit, titled “Here, There, and Everywhere,” is a representative collection of work produced by undergraduate students from three campuses of USU.

Noel Carmack, the director of Gallery East, characterized the work as examples of some of the best from these respective campuses.

“Visitors will see that the exhibit is comprised of nearly all the fine art media or disciplines that are taught on these campuses,” he said. “This includes drawing, painting, ceramics, sculpture, photography and printmaking. These undergraduate art students are pursuing either an associate degree or a baccalaureate degree in fine art.”

The results of their creative efforts are critical for getting placed in other art degree programs and securing art-related jobs and design positions.

“Many of these students go on to become working studio artists,” Carmack said. “Others find employment as graphic artists, illustrators, interior designers, and museum curators.”

Whatever their motivation, these young students take visual arts classes for personal expression and enrichment. Often, their experience in studio art courses is their first formal education in the visual arts.

For those who ultimately graduate and go on to arts-related disciplines, or perhaps take career positions in technical, science, engineering and labor-intensive fields, they will apply those creative processes in their respective endeavors.

Gallery East is free and open to the public during the academic year. The spring hours for the gallery are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.
