Xavier's Art Department is now presenting the fourth annual Art at the X. Art at the X is a national juried competition that takes place at the Art Gallery in the A.B. Cohen Center. The gallery opened on Aug. 26 and will remain open for viewing until Sept. 23. It is open to the public Monday through Friday from 10:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. "It brings a wide variety of art to Xavier's campus," Kitty Uetz, Newswire photo by Andrew Matsushitadirector for the Xavier University art galleries, said. "Artists from all across the country come to compete." The gallery exhibits artists from California, Massachusetts, South Carolina, Texas, Michigan and several other states, along with several artists from Cincinnati. Each artist must be at least 18 years old and can enter up to three pieces for an entry fee of $25.

There are no restrictions on the media used, which vary, includingdigital drawing, wood cut and oil on canvas.

Every year, a juror is chosen to review all the entries."The juror is typically someone from the Cincinnati area who is involved in the arts," Uetz said. This year the juror chosen was Deborah Emont Scott, CEO of Taft Museum of Art, known to be one of the finest small art museums in America. Out of all the pieces entered, 47 of them were chosen to be in this year's gallery. Of those 47 pieces, Scott gave seven pieces an Award of Excellence. Scott chose these pieces for their innovation. The gallery is free of charge, and many of the submitted pieces are available for purchase.
