The ETSU Department of Art and Design and Slocumb Galleries held the awards ceremony for the annual Student Honors Show this past Thursday, April 17.
The Student Honors Show is the annual undergraduate art competition, which celebrates students who are making excellent work in their concentration of study. There were over 300 different works entered in to the show for selection and then this years juror, Bill May of the Arrowmont School of Arts & Crafts, selected each piece that would be admitted to the final exhibit.
During the awards ceremony art students who received academic scholarships were acknowledged, nine outstanding pieces from each concentration which were chosen by the juror received merit awards, and the faculty and staff of the art and design department awarded the "best of show" and "faculty choice" awards. Not only do these awards signify exemplary work made in the art department each year, but every award is also accompanied with a prize sponsored by individuals, local businesses, and the Johnson City Area Arts Council.
The area merit awards received this year are as follows: "Tapered" by Becca Irvin for ceramics, "Time Capsules" and "With & Without" by Tyler Ridgeway for drawing, "Speak With Me (The Seeds)" by Chantel Wehr for jewelry/metals, "Untitled" by Rima Day for fibers, "Tenfold's Light Hide" by Priyanka Modi for graphic design, "Jill" by Hannah Harper for painting, "Branter" by Trish Gibson for photography, "Rise And Fall" by Susan Voorhees for printmaking, and "Three Wise Men" by Michael Hale for sculpture.
Faculty choice awards were given to Becca Irvin for her work "Tapered" and Freddie Lyle's piece "Contraption." Lyle also received the best of show award chosen by Bill May for his piece "Contraption."
All of the work from the student honors show is still on display at the Slocumb Galleries and will remain up until May 2. The Slocumb Galleries' exhibitions are all open to the public free of charge, Mondays-Fridays from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. with extended hours on Thursdays until 6 p.m., during receptions and after lectures.
