Outside jurors from various professions in the art world and members of Linfield Faculty are invited to judge the work submitted by any student enrolled at Linfield College. This exhibition allows the community of Linfield College as well as outside visitors an opportunity to experience the art work created by Linfield Students in the professional environment of the Linfield Gallery.
An Artist Reception and Award Presentation will be held in the Linfield Gallery at 5 p.m. on Wednesday, December 4.
