Said Gallery Director and Professor of Fine Arts Lucas Kelly, "From an academic viewpoint, the student exhibition is the most noteworthy show the gallery presents. It provides an opportunity for Mercer students to showcase their work – many for the first time – and to document their creativity and initiatives outside the safety of the classroom. A major step in becoming a visual arts professional is developing the confidence to share your work with the public. To celebrate this moment with our students is an honor."  (Right: "Sanguine," an oil painting by Megan Serfass)
