Joyner Library at East Carolina University celebrated the opening reception and award ceremony for the 5th Annual Graduate Student Art and Design Exhibition Nov. 15.

This exhibition, held every fall semester, showcases the talent and hard work of ECU graduate students and provides an inspirational learning environment for all students, faculty, and library patrons.  Cash awards were given, with one funded by the Friends of Joyner Library to add original art to the Library’s permanent collection.  Diverse works include paintings and drawings, textile and metal designs, sculpture, photography, pottery, and more.

“The works by the 17 artists participating in this year’s exhibition are inspiring, creative, and thought-provoking.  Joyner Library is excited to host this exhibit and to provide an opportunity for the artists to share their talent with the community and to be recognized for their work,” says Jan Lewis, interim dean of Academic Library & Learning Resources.

C. Barbour Strickland III served as this year’s juror.  With more than 30 years of experience in N.C. arts, Strickland is the owner of FrameMakers, Strickland Art Resources & Gallery, and The Arts Connection website.  He is the former art director of the Greenville Museum of Art and currently serves on boards of art organizations statewide, including as president of the Friends of ECU’s School of Art and Design.
