On Nov. 11, between 5 and 7 p.m., Colorado State University-Pueblo will hold its Annual Student Art Show Awards Reception in the Hoag Hall A/M Building. The event recognizes the talents and efforts of art students. Works include: framed paintings, ceramics, large-scale mosaics, hand drawn and various forms of mixed discipline style of art.

At the end of each fall semester, the university’s art department puts on a gallery, which features all student-submitted art, regardless of the students’ major or year at CSU-Pueblo.

The gallery will be a display of work in call media curated by “Create Denver” director and one of Westworld Magazine’s top 100 Colorado Creatives, Lisa Gedgaudas.

Gedgaudas, a Denver native, has been working on multiple efforts to enhance the quality of life through art, according to her Open Media profile.

Submission for the exhibit was open to all students and resulted in several different forms of art from numerous artists on campus.

Fine Arts Gallery Director Caroline Peters said the student-submitted gallery is one of her favorites of the year and always features a unique selection of works.

“I’m really excited, it’s always great, and I think we have a lot of interesting art this year,” Peters said.

At the reception, awards will be given to Best of Show, 1st, 2nd, 3rd place as well as Peoples Choice.

Exhibited works will be available to purchase by those in attendance who promote the furthering of original local and student art in Pueblo.

The gallery isn’t open yet, but will be open for the rest of the fall semester Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and is free to visit for anyone.

Free refreshments will be served at the reception, and the event is free to the public.
