STATESBORO — A Georgia Southern student was one of 21 students selected for a national juried exhibit, according to a GS press release.

Kimberly Barron, a senior fine arts major, created a 50 pound clay ceramics piece for the national juried exhibition “Pretty and Peculiar” hosted in Sacramento, California by the Fey Gallery. The piece resembles that of a hairless cat, but with a twist.

Ceramics Professor John Jensen thinks that this raises the Betty Foy Sanders Department of Art and the University to a high level according to the press release. He also claims that he believes it raises the bar in the ceramics program. 

Jensen said that is an honor for any student, but especially an undergraduate student to be recognized in such a way, according to the press release.
