Austin State University’s acclaimed art competition and exhibition, which can be seen virtually starting the afternoon of Tuesday, May 5 and running through June 13.

    This year’s exhibition will be in video format that will be posted on the SFA School of Art Facebook page and website. The show will include approximately 60 pieces of art, including photography, painting, sculpture and mixed media, according to John Handley, director of SFA galleries. An online catalogue will also be provided.

    The School of Art’s annual juried competition and exhibition attracts entrants from across the United States, providing artists an opportunity to have their work juried by highly acclaimed curators and critics, such as this year’s juror, Annette Lawrence, professor of studio art in the College of Visual Arts and Design at the University of North Texas. She will critique and judge the entries with the assistance of a walk-through video.
