All artists have a beginning, just like Andy Warhol, whose work was recently featured on the storied walls of UHD’s O’Kane Gallery.

Now Gator students are lining the Gallery’s wall for its annual student art exhibition, which began Thursday, April 14, and runs through Friday, May 6. Between 80 and 100 artwork pieces of various mediums, including painting, drawing, watercolor, graphic design, photography, and mixed media, are on display.IMG_4283
