Staff Reports • Updated Apr 20, 2016 at 2:00 PM

The Heydel Center’s Adams Gallery at Cumberland University currently features the 2016 Student Focus Art Show through Friday. 

The paintings, drawings, photography, neon, sculpture and ceramics in the show represents recent work from 20 art students and is “some of the best work we have ever had,” said Ted Rose, a professor in the arts department. 

The public is invited to hear students talk about their art pieces at a reception Thursday from 4-7 p.m., and an awards ceremony will be Friday at noon at the center. Judges for this year’s show are Lissa Gill and Connie Pirtle. Both women hold master of fine arts degrees and have extensive experience in academia as educators and administrators.

“This is our big student show and is the final show of this semester. I hope we have a big turnout to support our students,” said Peg Fredi, director of the Adams Gallery.

The Adams Gallery is open daily from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m.. Appointments may be made for other times. For more information, contact Peg Fredi at pfredi@cumberland.edu.
