In the first of its kind at Furman University, the Department of Art will present a student-curated exhibition in “Cultivate Our Garden” Jan. 21-Feb. 21 in Thompson Gallery of the Roe Art Building on campus. While gallery hours are Monday-Friday, 9 a.m.-5 p.m, a reception will be held at 6-8 p.m. Friday, Jan. 24.

Both the exhibition and reception are free and open to the public. The exhibition includes the work of Douglas Piper (Greenville, South Carolina), Mary Mazziotti (Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania), Millian Giang Lien Pham (University of Alabama, Tuscaloosa) and Suzanne Dittenber (University of North Carolina, Asheville).

Working with the art department’s Marta Lanier and faculty member Sarah Archino in an independent study, students prepared the call for artists and selected artists. The students curating the work are Furman seniors Beth Fraser, Olivia Corso and Libby Mackow.
