1708 Gallery Invitational Undergraduate Artist Forum!

On Saturday night, 2/9/08, 1708 Education and Outreach held the Forum, this time for invited undergraduate art students from University of Richmond, University of Virginia and Virginia Commonwealth University. Rafiya Naim, Hank West, Patrick John Costello, Kathleen Crabill, Katie Laub, Erik Gonzalez, Katherine DeGaetani and Lucy Marion gave presentations of their work and also have their work in a show at Capital One.

Ashley Kistler from Richmond's Visual Art Center was our guest critic and moderator for this Forum and was just fantastic, giving the students valuable feedback about their work and about their presentations. Thank you so much, Ashley!

I will be posting images of the nominated student's artworks and their artist statements beginning today, keep an eye out for some truly inspired and inspiring posts.
