Earlier this month, the 4th annual Juried Student Art Show took place in the CCM Gallery curated by Dana Heffern, Art Gallery Director. The show featured works in video, audio, 3-D model, photography, sculpture, graphic design, digital and manual painting, drawing, and illustration from students of many different majors. This year, there were 175 entries and the 2019 Jury chose 56 for the show, which ran until April 9.
Jessica Farnsworth ’19, a Graphic Design & Digital Media major, took home the Provost’s Choice award for her work “Falling Out of Love.” “Being in the show was really exciting, besides capstone it was my first time having my work shown in the gallery,” she explained. “It was really exciting to be chosen by the Provost. I’ve never really had my design work recognized by anyone before.”
Sophia Penna ’19, also a Graphic Design & Digital Media major, took home the Juried Choice Award for Graphic Design for her book “NASTY.”
“The Juried Student Art Show is something I look forward to every year. Dana and her crew do an amazing job setting it up,” Penna remarked. “It’s a great opportunity to see everyone’s art, regardless of major.”
