“Each year, UAM receives an impressive variety of submissions from undergraduate and graduate students, showcasing a wide range of materials, methods, and ideas,” the museum said in a press release. . “JSS is an opportunity to recognize the hard-working students of NMSU by acknowledging their exceptional creativity. This exhibition always attracts a large audience and encourages broad community support.
2022 JSS, judged by Carissa Samaniego, features 50 works of art in a wide range of mediums created by undergraduate and graduate students from various disciplines and majors on NMSU’s main campus, according to the press release.

As usual, the JSS received great community support, and UAM is honored to be able to award over $4,500 in rewards this year.
The exhibition opening reception will be held from 5:30 to 7 p.m. on Friday, March 18 at UAM. The awards ceremony will begin at 6 p.m. JSS will be visible in the UAM Contemporary Gallery until Saturday, April 9.
