2018 UT Juried Student Exhibition Public Reception/Awards

Eye On Art  |  03/08/2018 9:00 am

Selected University of Toledo students will have their artwork on display in the 2018 Juried Student Exhibition, an annual competitive exhibition. Over 30 works of art across a range of media by UT students will be on display. There will be an opening reception and award ceremony Friday, March 16 from 6 to 8 p.m. in the UT Center for Visual Arts Gallery. The show runs through March 22. 

This year’s juror is Alli Hoag. Her artistic practice is concerned with themes of magic. Seeing magic as the desire to connect with the world outside of our perceptual and cognitive abilities, she attempts to create moments where one can believe that distance is overcome. Alli works across mediums of glass, installation, video, performance and digital technology to investigate this uniquely human desire, and to reveal the simultaneous lightness and heaviness that is created when the imagined or invisible is labored into the physical realm.

Alli completed her BFA degree in Glass at University of Hawaii at Manoa and graduated from New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University in 2012. After graduation, she served as adjunct professor, teaching in both Sculpture and Glass.

Alli has developed her work internationally through residencies abroad at Cite des Arts International in Paris, France and S12 Galleri og Verksted in Bergen, Norway. She has exhibited both internationally and nationally, with solo exhibitions recently at Urbanglass, New York and upcoming at University of North Georgia in 2017. She was recognized as a 2015 Emerging Artist by the Glass Art Society, and currently is serving as Head of the Glass Program at Bowling Green State University.

These events will take place in the UT Center for Visual Arts, next to the Toledo Museum of Art. The exhibition and awards reception are free to attend, and all are welcome.
