The exhibition is in the College of Arts and Sciences’ Abroms-Engel Institute for the Visual Arts. A free closing reception for the exhibition is set from 5-7 p.m. Friday, April 27.

The students, in the College of Arts and Sciences’ Department of Art and Art History, have produced works that represent the culmination of their academic and studio education at UAB, says interim chair Jessica Dallow, Ph.D.

“The BFA exhibition is a highlight of the BFA undergraduate career,” Dallow said. “Displaying a breadth of media, quality craft and conceptual depth, the students’ works reflect the rigorous program of artistic study and demonstrate and celebrate the students’ accomplishments.”

The artists are Jennifer Lemons, Bailey Barrow, Anne Marie Cartwright, Caroline Etheriedge, Morgan Fowler, Camille Goulet, Rachel Hendrix, Cima Khademi, Alexandra Kulick, Cameron Larsen, Courtney Lassiter, Meghan Malone, Joni Moore, Amanda Morgado, Rachel Ozley, Tyra Robinson and Emily Stroud.

The BFA exhibition is free and open to the public. Call 205-975-6436 or visit AEIVA online at www.uab.edu/cas/aeiva. AEIVA is open to the public 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday-Friday and 12-6 p.m. Saturday. It is closed Sundays and holidays.

The Department of Art and Art History’s Bachelor of Fine Arts degree offers students an intensive exploration across a breadth of media, and within a depth of discipline that allows the student to prepare to be an artist or designer, for a career in the arts, or to continue studies in graduate school. Students gain skills and competencies including team-based learning, technology, communication, aesthetic judgment, interdisciplinary and innovative approaches, critical analysis, and professional development throughout their programs of study.
