Sixteen graduating University of Alabama at Birmingham students will have their works featured in a Bachelor of Fine Arts exhibition April 1-27, with a free closing reception from 6-8 p.m. Friday, April 26.

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. Displaying a breadth of media, quality craft, and conceptual depth, the students’ work reflects the rigorous program of artistic study and demonstrates and celebrates students’ accomplishments,” Dallow says.

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 undergraduate student to prepare to be an artist or designer, to begin a career in the arts, or to continue his or her 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 program of study.

The artists are: Laura Benson, Nicholas Howard, LaKesha Lee, Giani Martin, Thaddeus Mickler, Macy Jane Moon, Anthony Smith, and William Webb of Birmingham; James Clay of Alabaster; Frances Hackney of Vestavia Hills; Jameson Evans of Hoover; Irasema Quezada Hammock of Juarez, Mexico; Mary Kalusche of Vicksburg, Miss.; Mae Lawhon of Hamilton; Jessica M. Ray of Gardendale; and Terrence Wimberly of Colorado Springs, Colo.
