Northwestern student artwork part of juried exhibition

Northwestern College’s final art show of the academic year will feature work chosen as part of a juried exhibition. The selected entries will be on display in the Te Paske Gallery April 24 through May 5, with a public reception scheduled for Tuesday, May 2, at 7 p.m.

Northwestern’s annual Juried Student Art Exhibition gives the college’s art students the opportunity to test their work with each other and to have the results of that competition exhibited. The show will feature paintings, drawings, prints, sculpture, ceramics and photographs, as well as mixed media and graphic design projects. While the students are not required to be art majors, all entries must be work created as part of a Northwestern College art course.

Lindsay Bauer, the new executive director of the Orange City Arts Council, is serving as the juror for the show. She will announce awards and offer comments about her selections during the May 2 reception.

Bauer graduated from Northwestern College in 2008 with a bachelor’s degree in theatre. Following graduation, she was one of the early organizers of the SchoolHouse Company, a local theatre troupe, and after moving to Chicago, served as the after-school programs coordinator for the American Theater Company. Now program director of OCStages/Orange City Youth Theatre, she acts professionally with Vandal Theatre Lab and Swander Woman Productions. In 2016 she assisted with the planning of Arts on Central, the Orange City Arts Council’s summer festival. She also acted in the SchoolHouse Company’s production of “Little Women” and produced the Orange City Arts Council’s Evening of Dance.

The Te Paske Gallery is located in the Thea G. Korver Visual Arts Center, on Highway 10 at 214 8th St. S.W. in Orange City. Gallery hours are 8 a.m. to midnight Monday through Saturday and 1 p.m. to midnight Sunday.
