Reception to celebrate opening of art exhibit

A free public reception Thursday, February 7, will celebrate the opening of SPREAD, an exhibit by students of visual arts, curated by instructors Nadja Pelkey, Victor Romao and Julie Sando.

The show takes the form of a space displaying handmade and re-purposed artist’s books, zines, painting and sculptures, and an adjacent reading room where patrons may peruse some of the printed works.

It is in the LeBel Building’s SoVA Projects Gallery. Thursday’s reception runs from 6 to 8 p.m.
