The University of Dayton's final student art exhibition of the academic year is now on display, with a formal opening and awards presentation next week.

The visual arts department's Horvath Exhibition is open now through April 24 in the Rike Center gallery on campus. Nearly 70 pieces of student artwork for this juried exhibit is on display, including drawings, paintings, photography, ceramic and sculpture.

Rike Center gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday; 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday; 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday; closed Saturday and Sunday.

The winners, who were chosen last week, will be honored at the formal opening of the exhibit 5 to 7 p.m. Tuesday, April 8, in the Rike Center gallery. The opening is part of the University's annual Stander Symposium. Tickets are free and available at the Kennedy Union box office by calling 937-229-2545.

The Horvath Exhibition is made possible through a memorial gift from Josephine Horvath in honor of her husband, Bela Horvath, a Hungarian realist painter who came to UD to after fleeing his home country. With UD's sponsorship, he taught private classes in sculpture and painting from his studio.
