2010 All Campus Undergraduate Student Art Exhibition

On November 18th, the 2010 All Campus Undergraduate Student Art Exhibition opened in the Lillian Davis Hogan Gallery in the Toner Center on St. Mary's Winona Campus. The opening was well attended and featured over 70 works of art from students in 16 different majors.

Work being exhibited is in a wide variety of media, including graphic design, charcoal, photography, painting, sculpture, watercolor, and print making.

There is an excellent range and depth of work being shown, but after careful deliberation, the juror was able to choose seven pieces to recognize. Places one through three received prizes, and all received recognition during the opening and the juror's comments to the opening's crowd.

First place is Ashley Blum's (Studio Art and Graphic Design major) Honey is the Milk of Life, made of paper towel, wheat paste, and cloth.

Second place is Stephanie Binot's (Graphic Design major) watercolor painting, Untitled.

Coming in third is this photograph by Rachel Sievers (Graphic Design and Spanish major), titled
Autumn 360.

The following four piece all received honorable mention awards.

Ben Jarret (Theatre major), Don't Wake Me, Digital Photography.

Ashley Blum (Studio Art and Graphic Design major), I and My Ideas, Assemblage.
