Jurors statement

As a college art educator, I relish the opportunity to look at the work of art students, and so I was excited when Susan Moldenhauer asked me to jury the 2010 University of Wyoming student art exhibition. I selected artwork that balanced strong original ideas and concepts with technical expertise; art that transformed risk into reality.

I would like to congratulate all the students who submitted work. I know that it takes discipline, hard work and courage to put yourself out there like this. I recommend you use rejection as an energizer. And always remember that a juried show is as much a reflection on the interests and intentions of the juror as it is the quality and depth of the artwork that is submitted.

Gary Emrich Head of Photo/Video Department of Fine Arts Rocky Mountain College of Art & Design

The 35th Annual Juried University of Wyoming Student Exhibition features work from undergraduate, graduate and post-baccalaureate students currently enrolled at the University. This annual exhibition provides an opportunity to showcase the artwork being made by students from a variety of disciplines and academic programs at UW.

Students may submit up to three works for consideration and the exhibition is selected by an outside juror. This year, Gary Emrich, head of photography and video art at the Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design is the juror. Emrich is also an artist, working with found imagery and mixed media. As in the past, this year's exhibition promises to be full of creative and interesting work by UW students!
