Sonoma State University's annual Juried Student Exhibition runs March 26-April 12 in the University Art Gallery on campus. This year's exhibition features over 40 works of art selected by two jurors--Amy Owen, curator of di Rosa in Napa, and artist Chris Thorson.
Owen is curator to di Rosa's 217-acre art preserve and gallery and is the former senior exhibitions manager at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco. Thorson is a sculptor who specializes in capturing how objects hold cultural significance.
In addition to selecting the artwork, the jurors also interact with students to discuss ideas and careers in the art world.
The exhibition opens with a reception for the artists in the University Art Gallery Thursday, March 26, 5-7 p.m. The gallery is open 11 a.m.-4 p.m., Tuesday through Friday, and weekends noon-4 p.m., and is closed Mondays and holidays, including Cesar Chavez Day on March 31. Admission is free, but parking on campus is $5-$8.
