Utica, NY (06/26/2012)
- Steven Specht, professor of psychology at Utica College, has his artwork featured in the National Collage Society’s (NCS) 28th Annual Juried Exhibit in the Philip and Muriel Berman Museum of Art at Ursinus College in Collegeville, Pa.

The exhibit, which runs through Aug. 12, features collage artists from around the nation, ranging from representational to abstract.

The NCS had 528 submissions for this year’s exhibit and Specht’s collages, “I Began to Feel the Effects at 3000” and “It's Not Always Black-and-White,” were two of only 80 that were accepted.

This is the fourth time Specht’s work has appeared in the Annual Juried Exhibit. He became a Signature Member of the NCS last year with his third overall appearance.

Specht’s work can be viewed at from now until June 30, 2013. To view his other work, visit his blog,
