The William Carey University Student Art Show and Competition, featuring artwork by students from both the Hattiesburg and Tradition campuses, will be on display at the Kress Live in Biloxi from April 16-30.
The opening reception for the show will be from 5:30 until 8 p.m. on April 16. The reception will feature musical entertainment from the Rockestra Revolution, which is made up of student musicians from the Lynn Meadows Discovery Center in Gulfport under the direction of Dr. Tim Bergman. The group plays rock and other forms of popular music with orchestral instruments.
Over 80 student works have been entered in the competition, which will be judged by John Oles, a ceramic artist from New Orleans. There are eight competition categories, including drawing, painting, printmaking, photography, 3-D, design, Best in Show and the People's Choice Award. Cash prizes will be given to the winners of the categories.
