The public got its first chance to see Morehead State University’s sophomore art students’ work on display.

With both live music and provided snacks, the Sophomore Exhibition opened to the public on Wednesday. The exhibition is a requirement for the art program, and it is an opportunity for sophomore art students to display work they’ve done in their classes. It is a time for these students to reflect on their progress and consider where they wish to take their art from here.

Around 35 students participated in this year’s show. Pieces ranged from all different mediums, such as digital art, ceramics and illustration.  

“I’ve been doing sophomore shows for the last few years at a different university that I worked at before here,” said Melissa Yungbluth, the gallery director, “and I think this one is beautiful and has some outstanding student work in it.”

For students, this event represented an exciting milestone in their progress.

“This is really cool,” said Abby Caines ,a sophomore art student from Ashland, Kentucky. “Seeing everybody’s art and stuff; seeing all of their progress through the couple years we’ve been here.”

Another sophomore, Paige Stamper, from Hayward, Wisconsin said, “It’s really exciting because it looks very professional up on the wall, and I really admire it, and I’d like to continue putting my art on display.”

This exhibition will be on display until February 20, and these students will meet with their professors to discuss the future direction of their art on February 22.
