GRAPHIC DESIGN EXHIBIT – Becca Cadro, a Southeastern Louisiana University graphic design student from Metairie, views works by graphic design students from eight area universities currently on display at Southeastern’s Contemporary Art Gallery. The exhibit will run through April 22.

HAMMOND -- Graphic design works by students from eight area institutions including Southeastern Louisiana University are on display through April 22 at Southeastern’s Contemporary Art Gallery.
       Southeastern associate professor of visual arts Gary Keown said the exhibit is a first at Southeastern and is being mounted in conjunction with New Orleans chapter of the American Institute of Graphic Artists’ annual student portfolio reviews.
       “We decided the reviews would give us the opportunity to showcase the work being done by our student designers,” Keown said. He said faculty from AIGA New Orleans member institutions each were invited to choose approximately 10 works for the show.
       Southeastern students selected for the exhibit are Joe Gallinaro and Nicole Lousteau, Hammond; Heather Martin and Britni Digeorge, Ponchatoula; Michael Trahan, Livingston; Sarah Maricelli, Covington; John Schilling and Tchad Bailey, Abita Springs; and Jessica Clement, St. Rose.
       The Southeastern students will be joined by their peers from Louisiana State University, Delgado Community College, Nicholls State University, Remington College, Loyola University, Xavier University, and the University of Louisiana-Lafayette.
       A reception for the participants and reviewers is scheduled for 3-5 p.m. on April 22, the day of the portfolio reviews.
       Contemporary Art Gallery hours are 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m., weekdays with extended hours until 8 p.m. on Wednesdays For additional information, contact Southeastern’s Department of Visual Art, 985-549-2193.
