“If you weren’t able to make it the J.W. Martin Library while the show was up, you have an opportunity to see the best of the best at the Runnymede,” Angelia Case, NAS sponsor, said. “I thank Dr. Ken Brown for allowing us to continue to bring our winning pieces downtown to share with the general public.”

The Runnymede show will be from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Monday, April 30, with a reception for artists and the public from 7 to 8:30 p.m. The show also is open downtown on Tuesday, May 1, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Like the campus show, guests attending the Runnymede show are encouraged to vote for the artwork they like best for a “People’s Choice” award.

Non-placing entries in the campus show must be picked up before 5:30 p.m. Monday from the Media Services Office, second floor of the library.

Artwork at the Runnymede show may be picked up by the artists following the show at 6 p.m. on Tuesday. A final opportunity to pick up entries will be at the Media Services Office, second floor of the library on Wednesday.

Some of the students’ winning art pieces will not be on display at the Runnymede because of the “Artist Scholar Exhibition” currently showcasing the artwork of Northwestern’s students in the Studio Art program, which is led by Brandice Guerra, assistant professor of art. The student show is free and open to the public at the Graceful Arts Center today through Northwestern’s graduation on May 5.
