The annual Bachelor of Arts Exhibition (BAX), which features works in the creative arts by students at Grinnell College, will open with a reception from 4 to 5 p.m. Friday, April 6, in the Faulconer Gallery. Prizes will be awarded to students and refreshments will be provided.

The BAX Exhibition features work by third-year students and seniors who major in art, as well as students in other majors who work intensively in studio. With support from Faulconer Gallery staff, the students manage all the exhibition details: from the submission of proposals to selection of a juror, to the installation process and the awarding of prizes.

Prizes to be presented at the reception include awards in a variety of categories, including honors for a specific medium, such as sculpture or print, and for the best piece or pieces in the show.

Studio art majors Charlotte Richardson-Deppe ’19 and Anne Rogers ’19 took the lead in organizing the exhibition this year. The students selected Amy Kligman as juror. She is executive/artistic director of the Charlotte Street Foundation, an arts organization in Kansas City, Missouri.

The BAX Exhibition is exciting precisely because it doesn't exactly have a theme,” says Richardson-Deppe. “It is made up of advanced art students submitting their best and most recent work. It contains a variety of media, including drawings, sculptures and digital work, and it promises to be a strong show this year.”

BAX will continue through May 6 at the Faulconer Gallery in the Bucksbaum Center for the Arts, 1108 Park St., Grinnell. Gallery hours are 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily.
