Three UIS Visual Arts majors work to be displayed in downtown exhibition

The work of three University of Illinois Springfield Visual Arts majors will be displayed in April at the Prairie Art Alliance’s Gallery II, located at 221 South Sixth Street in downtown Springfield.

The 2011 Juried College Exhibit is designed to showcase and celebrate work created in Springfield’s local academic culture. The exhibition will include the artwork of UIS students Sarah Ayers, Judah Johnson and Joel Walter.

The exhibit will run April 1-30, with an opening coinciding with downtown Springfield's First Friday on April 1 from 5 to 8 p.m. The opening is free and open to the public. The event will feature live music, wine, hors d'oeuvres, and great conversation in addition to the thought provoking student pieces.

The Prairie Art Alliance is committed to fostering community awareness and participation in the visual arts. Its mission is to serve the public through exhibits, classes and community outreach programming, and encourage the development of member artists.
