Food, music and stunning art will share the floor with well-dressed people discussing lighting techniques and oil paint versus acrylic. It could very well be the scene of some expensive gallery opening in New York City – but then someone walks by in a green and gold USF shirt and the setting becomes local again.
USF is having its 9th Annual ArtHouse exhibition tonight. All of the galleries will be opened to display their best and brightest works from Fine Arts students, as well as the student studios where some of the art was created.
ArtHouse will run from 8:30 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. MONTAGE PHOTO/JOSE LOPEZ JR.
The event also includes the 31st annual juried student art exhibition.
The best part of the event is that all this horizon-broadening culture is free and open to the public.
ArtHouse gives individuals a chance to see where the Fine Arts undergraduate students are going and where the Graduate students have gone. The student-artists will be wandering around at the show, drinks in hand, probably terrified and elated in a jumble of nerves. Who knows – the next Claude Monet or Ansel Adams may be there.
The 9th Annual ArtHouse is being held tonight, from 8:30 p.m. to 11 p.m. For more information, visit their website.
