For two weeks, the University of Houston's Blaffer Gallery will feature a flurry of works including digital media, installations, prints, paintings, photography, sculptures and videos. Approximately 90 artworks make up this year's School of Art Annual Student Exhibition, on view Feb. 27 - March 13.

The exhibition presents the work of senior bachelor of fine arts and non-graduating master of fine arts students from the School of Art.

The public is invited to a free opening reception at Blaffer from 6 - 8 p.m., Feb. 26.  At this time, visitors are encouraged to tour the students' studios throughout the Fine Arts Building.

The Annual Student Exhibition opening is one of the most highly attended events at Blaffer, often drawing in more than 1,000 visitors.

"People often forget just how big the School of Art is," said John Reed, the school's director. "We have about a thousand students doing the broadest imaginable range of artistic practice. The thing I like about this exhibition is that you get to see a visual super-sampler, a rich cross section of the talent and creativity of our students."
