Art is in the eye of the University Union. California State University, Sacramento annually sponsors a campus-wide student art show and the winning selections are included in an art exhibit in the University Union Gallery. The show is the longest running tradition the Union hosts.

The 27th annual Student Purchase Award Show is on display from 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., Monday - Friday and 5 to 8 p.m., Wednesdays and Thursdays through May 23.

About 60 art pieces were submitted for the juried show and 17 pieces were selected for the exhibition by judge Barry Sakata who owns b.Sakata Garo Gallery located in downtown Sacramento.

Each year three pieces are awarded "best of show" and two pieces are purchased for the University Union's permanent collection.

This year CSUS students Hei Fok received a best of show and purchase award, Hong Zhang received a best of show and purchase award and Richard Meyers received a best of show award.
