UCA student winners

Posted By on Tue, Mar 15, 2011 at 10:36 AM

Amber Lea won the Grand Prize in the 2011 annual Student Competitive Art Exhibition at the University of Central Arkansas with her ceramic piece, "Deductive." Shades of Viola Frey in this nice piece. Four excellence award winners were also selected by juror and installation artist Doug Cason: Karen Chrisco, for her textile installation "Home is Where You Hang Your Hat"; Tori Houston, for her mixed media installation "In Your Home, In Your Grave"; Mark Monroe, for his mixed media sculpture "It is all (in process)"; and Danielle Ambry for her graphic design "B movie poster series."

Honorable Mention awards went to Jordan Karpe for the acrylic on panel painting "Miscommunication"; Grace Robert for the mixed media drawing "What Happens to Dead Bugs"; Limestone Molasses for the mixed media acrylic painting "Syzygyl/Anima/Animus"; and Will Pollock for the performance piece "The Delineater of Time."

Limestone Molasses? That's what the press release said.

Cason chose 60 artworks and seven installations from 227 works and 12 installations submitted for the show, which runs through the end of the month in the Baum Gallery.
