BEMIDJI, Minn. (March 30, 2011) — Eighteen students from Bemidji State University’s Department of Visual Arts will have work on display in the University’s Talley Gallery as part of the department’s annual scholarship show.

The show, “Contrast,” opens Monday, April 4, and continues through May 3. An opening reception for the exhibition will be held at the gallery from noon to 3 p.m. on April 4.

Students competing in this year’s show were free to create works in any media featuring an interpretation of the word “contrast.”

The Talley Gallery is located in room 212 of the Education Arts building on the campus of Bemidji State University. It is barrier-free and open at no charge to the public.
