SELU Student Exhibition
October 2-30, 2015
The Hammond Regional Arts Center is excited to announce an exhibition of works created by the visual art students of Southeastern Louisiana University.
This exhibition, coordinated by Anna Fernandez, the president of the Visual Arts Society, showcases student talent in the SELU art department across several disciplines.
The purpose of this show is to help students grow as artists and become familiar with the process of how to be a successful artist.
Works selected for the show this year include a diverse array of media and approaches, from carefully rendered drawings to paintings, ceramics, sculptures and graphic design.
The exhibition will remain on display through Oct. 30.
Returning for a third year is So You Think You Can Write. This artwork-based creative writing project demonstrates the powerful impact that art can have on a writers’ imagination while giving contestants a focus for their writing.
Writers will create a cohesive story line that connects to one of nine images from local and regional artists, which represent a diversity of subject matters.
Contestants will vie for cash prizes in the amounts of $100, $75, $50 for 1st, 2nd or 3rd place in the genres of poetry, play, or short story. Winners will be announced at the closing reception for HRAC's upcoming literary event, Celebrating the Written Word. Click here for more information.
