2019 UMA Student Art Exhibition

March 29th - April 24th, 2019
Awards Reception Sunday, April 14th 4:00-6:00pm 


As the world shifts from gray winter to bright spring, the art students at the University of Maine at Augusta bring the Danforth Gallery to life with their creative endeavors.  Open to both art and non-art majors, students submit work from various art classes throughout the year. The artwork spans a variety of media including, but not limited to, ceramics, design, drawing, painting, photography, printmaking, mixed media, and sculpture.


Each submission is judged on technical execution and ideas reflecting a broad range of 
media and at all stages in academic development.  Honorary Judge Andres A. Verzosa will select pieces for awards that are carefully 
crafted, thoughtfully developed and designed.

The Exhibition is on display from March 29th to April 24th, and the public is welcome to visit the gallery in Jewett Hall, which is open on Mondays through Thursdays from 9:00am to 5:00pm and on Fridays from 9:00am to 4:00pm. Families of the students, the UMA community and the general public are also invited to the Awards Reception on Sunday, April 14th from 4:00pm to 6:00pm, where students get to discuss  their work and receive awards on selected pieces.

The UMA art program offers a bachelors degree in studio art with courses in drawing, painting, 
sculpture, ceramics, design, printmaking, electronic arts, and photography.
