Paducah School of Art and Design (PSAD) will open its 2015 National Jewelry and Small Metals Exhibition with an opening reception Thursday, October 1 from 5-7 p.m. in the Clemens Fine Arts Center Gallery.

The annual exhibition, which is free and open to the public, features a selection of works from leading artists from around the country.

With the addition of our jewelry and small metals program in January 2013, PSAD has since made a point of showcasing leading artists in the field through our national invitational exhibitions, says Paul Aho, dean of the art school. This year is no exception and we are pleased to exhibit the work of fifteen artists representing a range of vision and techniques for the benefit of our students and the pleasure of the community we serve. We are grateful to Sarah Renshaw and Lily Liu for curating this exciting and spectacular selection of works.

The Clemens Gallery is located in the Clemens Fine Arts Center on the campus of West Kentucky Community and Technical College. Gallery hours are Monday through Thursday, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Visitors can view the jewelry and small metals exhibition through November 20.
