Join us to celebrate our BFA students who have been juried into our annual exhibition at Harrison Galleries.

The exhibition features bachelor of fine arts candidates whose work has been selected by faculty jurors. All UA undergraduate art majors who passed the review for the BFA degree are eligible to enter the competition, juried by a committee of UA studio faculty. Coordinator for the event, Associate Professor Pete Schulte, said, “The diverse body of work presented in the 2018 edition of the Annual BFA Juried Exhibition represents the most ambitious and informed work being created by undergraduates working toward to a professional arts degree (BFA) in the studio program at UA. The exhibition features a diverse array of works from students across media areas and provides the audience with the unique opportunity to take the pulse of a variety of contemporary art practices – from traditional to rigorously experimental – as well as that of some most creative students at The University of Alabama.”

Harrison Galleries is located at 2315 University Boulevard in downtown Tuscaloosa and is open Monday through Friday, 12 noon to 5:00 pm, and by appointment: (205) 464-0054.

The Bachelor of Fine Arts degree is the professional degree for the artist; it is also the foundation for the masters program in studio art at UA. The annual juried event seeks to give BFA students the chance to compete and exhibit their work while still in school, rather than at the end of their tenure, providing art students more opportunities to exhibit and participate in art events before graduation.
