Annual Juried Student Exhibition – in the main gallery
Guest juror: Anna Metcalfe, Minneapolis Community and Technical College

The Annual Juried Student Exhibition is always one of the highlights of the University Art Gallery schedule. Come view some of the best recent Truman student artwork, juried in spring 2022 by ceramicist Anna Metcalfe.

Upstream – Anna Metcalfe – The Cube

Ceramicist Anna Metcalfe’s works combine ceramics and social practice to explore the relationships between water, agriculture, food, and community. In Upstream, the artist explores how communities are connected through a common watershed by recording experiences and memories about water shared through conversations over tea. Metcalfe then reproduces those stories on cups to spark new conversations. Metcalfe lives in Minneapolis and currently teaches at Minneapolis Community and Technical College. Upstream is sponsored by Missouri Arts Council.

Exhibit dates: March 15-April 14, 2022
