For the third time, 30 students from Brenau University will have their artwork showcased in Atlanta’s premier art venue.

The Brenau University Student Art and Design Show will be on display through Feb. 7 at the High Museum of Art. The museum will hold a free and public reception for the show with music and light refreshments from 2-4 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 24, at 1280 Peachtree St. NE in Atlanta. The artwork will be on display in the Greene Family Education Center in the lower level of the Stent Family Wing.

During regular hours, High Museum tickets are $19.50 for adults and $16.50 for students. They are half price from 4-9 p.m. Fridays.

More than 100 different pieces will be on display at the student show. The artwork ranges from digital prints, stoneware, paintings and ceramics to mixed media.

David Morrison, assistant vice president of communications and publications at Brenau University, explained the college has a long history with the High Museum leading to student art being displayed at the museum.

“We are thrilled to have the students’ work exhibited at the High Museum of Art on display to a broad Southeastern audience,” Brenau art and design professor Lynn M. Jones said in a news release. “It’s an unparalleled opportunity.”

Kierra Herring, a fashion and design major at Brenau, is one of the students whose artwork will be on display at the High. She said she has always been interested in art with her ultimate goal being to one day work in product development or merchandise buying. It will be her third time to have art on display at the High.

“It’s a great opportunity,” she said. “I know people travel from all over to see the exhibit, and it’s an honor and a blessing to have my work displayed.”
