Bobcat Art Show Reception

April 13, 2015 - 4:30 pm to 6:30 pm

The reception for the 10th annual Bobcat Art Show is from 4:30-6:30 p.m. Monday, April 13, in the UC Merced Art Gallery (SSM 106).

In the art show, which opened April 6 and runs through May 5, students and faculty and staff members compete in five categories: painting, drawing, photography/digital media, mixed media and sculpture. Aside from a winner in each category, there is also an Audience Award, determined by the entry that receives the highest number of likes on Facebook.

It gives everyone a chance to be heard,” show founder Gail Benedict said of the social media aspect of the show. “Often, this is the first time an artist has publicly shown his or her work. The Audience Award encourages exhibitors to show this side of themselves with others who may not know their talents, and it gives family and friends a chance to rally behind them.”

The winners of each category will be announced at the reception. About two dozen entries will be on display in the gallery. The rest will be curated on the second floor of the Leo and Dottie Kolligian Library.
