The area community is invited to attend an artist reception to view 40 paintings, drawings and sculptures by 25 Missouri University of Science and Technology students and vote for a favorite piece of artwork.
The Art in the Library reception will be held at 4 p.m. Tuesday, April 4, in the Curtis Laws Wilson Library on the S&T campus. The event will allow visitors to learn more about the various artists’ intentions behind their pieces. The event is free and open to the public. The art works are currently displayed on the second floor of the library and will remain up throughout the month of April.
“A broad range of mediums are represented, including stained glass, acrylics, oils, mixed media and digital art,” says Roger Weaver, chair of the Art in the Library committee at Missouri S&T. “Visitors can vote for their favorite piece by visiting the library’s website, and the winner will take home the People’s Choice award.”
Visitors can cast their vote at library.mst.edu. Prizes will also be awarded for Best of Show and Honorable Mention. Judging will be conducted by members of the Art in the Library Committee. This semester, Rolla artist Orval Reeves will serve as a special guest judge. Reeves has had works hanging in the White House, Bank of California, the Missouri Governor’s Mansion and in private collections around the world.
This is the third semester in a row the library has hosted the Art in the Library display. View past exhibits online at scholarsmine.mst.edu/libexhibit.
Student Art in the Library is sponsored by the library and the College of Arts, Sciences, and Business at Missouri S&T.
