Rooster Summer: Young Alumni 2017

Humboldt State University (HSU) Third Street Gallery presents, Rooster Summer: Young Alumni 2017, on exhibit from Saturday, July 1 through Sunday, September 3. The exhibition features works by recent graduates from Humboldt State’s Art Department.

Annually, HSU Third Street Gallery exhibits the creative work of these ambitious artists as they transition from their art studies into their professional careers. The Rooster Summer: Young Alumni 2017 exhibition presents the work of 38 graduates whose art includes a wide variety of media and talent. This exhibition reflects the breadth of courses offered at the university including media areas such as sculpture, jewelry, painting, graphic design, mixed media, photography, printmaking, new genre and ceramics.

“The alumni participating in this show have all developed to a point where their craft has approached or is at a professional level,” states Third Street Gallery Director Jack Bentley.  “These participants demonstrate real evidence of artistic success. Crucial to their success, however, is an intangible quality they share—a dedication and commitment to making art as a way of life informed by poetic and intellectual engagement with their work.”

Upon entering the gallery, visitors will encounter a number of pieces of art by these graduates that have garnered awards and prizes.  These annual prizes, awards and scholarships are either underwritten or endowed by generous community members who support the educational mission of the Art Department at Humboldt State.

Exhibition Schedule and Location
A reception for the artists will be held at HSU Third Street Gallery on Saturday, July 1 from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. during Eureka’s monthly Arts Alive program.   The exhibition will run from July 1 through September 3. The gallery is open Tuesdays through Sundays from noon to 5 p.m. and is closed on Mondays. The gallery will be closed on July Fourth in observance of the holiday.
