EAST GREENSBORO, N.C. (April 2, 2024) – The University Galleries at North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University will host the 2024 Senior Art Exhibition, which showcases the variety of skills and talents of graduating students in the Visual Arts Program.

The exhibition’s opening reception is Thursday, April 11 at 5:30 p.m. The exhibition, which features a diverse range of mediums including painting, sculpture and digital art, will be on display through May 24.

“Our faculty is excited to see the hard work of our seniors in this year's exhibition,” said Roymieco Carter, N.C. A&T associate professor and director of the Visual Arts Program. “This presentation is the beginning of their professional artistic journey, and we are proud of their growth and talent.”

The Visual Arts Program provides students with a strong foundation in art history and technique, while encouraging them to explore new ideas and push the boundaries of their creativity, said Carter. Students will present bodies of work reflecting their journey through the program.

The exhibition is open to the public and will offer a unique opportunity for collectors and the local community to appreciate the skill of emerging artists. On the opening evening, visitors will have the chance to meet the artists, discuss their work and potentially purchase pieces for their own collections.

“We invite family members and community creatives to join us at the exhibition and support these talented artists,” said Willie Hooker, Ph.D., associate professor and coordinator of the Senior Art Exhibition. “Their work is sure to inspire and captivate all who attend.”

The exhibit will be open to the public during normal University Galleries hours, Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday by appointment. Admission is free. Group tours are welcome. For more information, call Carter at 336-334-3209.
