CHAMPAIGN, Ill. -- The work of eight University of Illinois graduate-student painters will be featured in a show March 13-17 at I space, the Chicago gallery of the UI at Urbana-Champaign.

"Today: In 8 Parts" is a reprise of a show originally exhibited at the Urbana campus’s Link Gallery. "Because it is such an outstanding show, we decided to take it on the road," said Sarah Krepp, a professor in UI’s School of Art and Design.

Various forms of painting – from oil on canvas to collage elements on canvas to mixed media assemblages – are represented in the exhibition.

The student artists, all of whom are working on a master of fine arts degree, are Scott Anderson, Anna Callahan, Sang-ah Choi, Kip Deeds, Joe Ford, Robert Horvath, Kariann Fuqua and Orion Wertz.

A reception is scheduled from 5 to 7 p.m. March 16. I space gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
