Students and Auburn community members are encouraged to come to the opening of the exhibit Bite Sized, held at Fieldworks Projects on Friday, March 13, from 5-7 p.m.
What started out as an idea by assistant professor Andrew Kozlowski to better prepare his students for what it means to be a professional artist, has now turned into a gallery exhibit that also sells the work of current students, alumni and faculty.
“I wanted to make an assignment where students would have to interwork, but also be on the other side in terms of actually making the exhibition happen,” Kozlowski said.
Kozlowski said the purpose of the exhibit was to interact with the community, as well as teach students the logistics of being an artist and putting on exhibits.
Students had to not only choose what to display, but the framing and layout of the exhibit as well.
Kozlowski split the students of his professional practices class into four teams, an install team, de-install team, marketing team and an opening team; to give his students hands-on experience putting together an exhibition.
The exhibition the students have put together, Bite Sized, will feature the miniature work of students from all mediums, no bigger than 15 by 15 inches, according to Asher Smale, senior in art.

Bite Sized will have its grand opening March 13, and will be open until April 12.
The opening will be held at Fieldworks Projects, which, according to Kozlowski, is an off campus extension of Biggin Gallery.
Kozlowski said the exhibit will be held off campus to attract Auburn community members, not just students.
The opening will be open to everyone and will give the audience a chance to view the work and grab some food, as well as interact with the artists.
“The audience can be expecting an array of 15 by 15 works from every discipline Auburn has to offer,” Smale said.
