SoFA Successes

On Friday of last week, more than twenty students from colleges and universities across Kentucky gathered at Georgetown College for the opening reception of "On the SoFA: State of Fine Art," an exhibition on view in the Anne Wright Wilson Fine Arts Gallery through January 4.

Thanks to everyone who presented their work in some form or another -- from design for the exhibition and Hip-Hop event, to curation of the events, to display of work.

Special shout out to our guests noted in the post by Art Gal and prospective students, Katie and Jacob, for visiting on Friday as well.

Be on the watch for SOS! next fall -- when sculpture will be on the menu.
