The West Virginia University School of Art & Design will present its fourth annual Juried Student Exhibition from Nov. 2-13 in the Douglas O. Blaney Lobby of the Creative Arts Center.

This exhibition features student work in a variety of mediums. These include ceramics, photography, sculpture, printmaking, graphic design, painting, drawing, video and animation.

The juror selected for this year’s exhibition is John Pe�a, a Pittsburgh-based multidisciplinary artist. Pe�a’s most recent work, titled “Daily Geology: 2015,” will opened in the Laura Mesaros Gallery at the Creative Arts Center on Oct. 15.

“Pe�a makes art as a way to explore the natural world through his daily interactions,” said Jason Lee, associate professor of sculpture.
