Dordt College’s annual junior art exhibit is now on display in the Campus Center gallery, featuring the work of 14 junior art major through Feb. 6.

A reception will be held at the gallery from 7-9 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 19, with participating artists discussing their work.

This impressive display has nearly 100 pieces of art, including two dimensional flat work, clay work, sculpture, and graphic works on view. The flat work covers media in painting, drawing, oil pastels, black and white and color photography, and printmaking.
