Gallerist Kat Griefen will make selections for "Making:Progress", a juried exhibition of work by students enrolled in the Kansas State University Department of Art. Griefen co-directs the Accola Griefen Gallery in New York City. Launched in 2011, the gallery exhibits work by emerging, mid-, and late-career contemporary artists with a focus on women artists, include Jaune Quick-to-See Smith and Renee Stout, two artists in the Beach Museum of Art collection.

Griefen will travel to campus in late October to select submissions of graduate and undergraduate student art and give a talk on her experiences as a gallery director in New York City.

Timothy R. Donoghue Graduate Scholarship recipients will assist with the exhibition installation and selection process. The K-State Department of Art offers degrees in ceramics, digital art, drawing, graphic design, painting, photography, printmaking, sculpture, metalsmithing, and jewelry.
