Students to Present Work at University Art Gallery, Kirksville Arts Association

The Truman State University Art Gallery is excited to host the annual Visual Communications Portfolio Review. This is a one-day event that opens with a reception at 6 p.m. and closes at 7:30 p.m. May 5.

The Visual Communications Portfolio Review is an opportunity for senior student designers to present their portfolios, display their design work and engage in an informal defense of their ideas. This event is the culmination of four years intensive study of design application and principles, honing the skills and testing the ingenuity of great professionals in the making.

An additional exhibit will take place beginning May 5. The student artists of Art215 are pleased to extend an invitation to “The Naked Truth,” an exhibition of drawings at The Kirksville Arts Association.

These pieces were executed through the observational study of nude models. Focusing on value, proportion, composition and atmosphere student artists explored and recorded the structure of the human form to create works of individual interpretation.
An opening reception will take place at 6 p.m. May 5 at the Kirksville Arts Association (KAA). The exhibit will be open during normal business hours at KAA, 117 S. Franklin Street, 665.0500, until May 31.
