The exhibition is offering a reception to meet the featured artists on Saturday, March 5 from 1-3 p.m. 

Kate Ogden, Stockton Professor of Art History, as creator of the exhibition has selected 103 pieces of art including drawings, paintings, photography, and graphic design/visual communication. 

“The visual arts faculty sponsors the Visual Arts Alumni Exhibition as a triennial so current students may view alumni artworks at least once during their enrollment,” stated Exhibition Coordinator Denise McGarvey. “Exhibiting alumni artists offers a diverse view of the development of one’s own body of work and the career paths they have taken.

The 37 alumni selected for the exhibition graduated between 1984 and 2020, all earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts, Bachelor of Arts, or a minor in the Arts/Visual Arts program at Stockton University.
