April 14 – May 11, 2017
Juried by Dennis Nance, the curator of Galveston Arts Center, this annual exhibition presented a selection of works by UHCL art students who earned a bachelor of fine arts in December 2016 or May 2017. Students were allowed to submit up to five original artworks, from which Nance made his selections as well as pick award winners who received cash prizes. Twenty students participated in the exhibition and the winners were:
- First place: Natasha Dewar
- Second place: Viridiana Navarro
- Third place: Amanda Varela
- Honorable Mention: Dawn Hailey
The "2017 UHCL Bachelor of Fine Arts Exhibition" was made possible by a generous gift from the UHCL Alumni Association. In-kind support was provided by Saint Arnold Brewing Company.
