TRUMPET STAFF

Wartburg College student artwork will be on display in the Cedar Valley Biennial Juried Art Exhibition. The exhibit will open on Dec. 10 in the Law-Reddington Gallery at the Waterloo Center for the Arts and be on display from Dec. 10, 2019, to March 8, 2020. Work by Briana Borchert, Angeline Neo, Lydia Revier, Brianna Whitney and Sara Young were selected for the exhibition.

“I actually debated for quite a while on if I wanted to submit something,” Young, a biology major, said. “At first I figured I wouldn’t get anything accepted because there are a lot of submissions done by various art majors. I ultimately decided to submit entries because I didn’t see the harm of trying.”

Out of the 178 total entries, only 66 works were selected. The work accepted include charcoal, photography, linocut and mixed media.

A public reception and awards ceremony is 6-8 p.m., Dec. 10, at the Waterloo Center for the Arts, 225 Commercial Street, Waterloo with the awards ceremony at 7 p.m.

The Cedar Valley Biennial Juried Exhibition is a showcase that features college student work from the University of Northern Iowa, Hawkeye Community College, Upper Iowa University and
Wartburg College.

This year’s guest juror was Fredo Rivera, assistant professor of art history at Grinnell College.
