University of Dubuque Students Showcase Artwork in "The Edge Show"

By University Relations Staff

DUBUQUE, Iowa - An annual fine art exhibit by students in the Department of Digital Art and Design at the University of Dubuque is the latest show at the Bisignano Art Gallery on campus.

"The Edge Show" is free and open to the public Monday, April 1, 2024, through Wednesday, April 10, 2024, at the art gallery inside Heritage Center, 2255 Bennett Street. Approximately 30 student artworks will be on display. The digital images and illustrations include digital paintings, graphic illustrations, imagined landscapes, contemporary icons, expressive portraits, and abstract expressions.

All digital art and design majors are required to submit one digital artwork that they have created for "The Edge Show." They cannot use a class project.

"The DART program's emphasis is on client-driven projects, not in the fine arts," said Sheila Sabers, MAC, head of the Department of Digital Art and Design and assistant professor of digital art and design. "'The Edge Show' allows our students the experience of presenting digital expressions in a fine arts format for the gallery. Students have an outlet to explore composition, process, and media outside the classroom using their objectives and establish their visual voice to communicate through image."

Gallery hours are noon to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. The art gallery is open in conjunction with all major events in John and Alice Butler Hall, Heritage Center.

"The Edge Show" will also be available virtually at
