Student art show winners announced


The annual student art show at Hammond Hall is going on now, and awards were presented to the best pieces in the exhibition on Thursday evening.

First place and honorable mention were recognized in a variety of categories, including ceramics, drawing, painting, and photography. All pieces were juried by JSU’s department of Art.

“There’s a variety of stuff [in the show], and it’s really strong in foundations: the drawing and design and painting,” says Painting professor Allison McElroy. “It shows what the department is about. So if someone wants to come and learn about the Art Department, this is a great time to see.”

The student showcase runs through March 22nd, and there are also encaustic paintings currently on display in the student gallery.

“We had a visiting artist last month, Helen DeRamus, and she did an encaustic painting workshop. It’s where you paint with wax,” McElroy says. “The students and I were able to take part; each student did five works. So take a look at that, too.”
