UMW Galleries Present Annual Student Art Exhibition

The University of Mary Washington Galleries is proud to announce the Annual Student Art Exhibition in the duPont Gallery. Of the many entries, only 28 artworks were selected for the show. We are proud to announce two recipients of the prestigious Melchers Gray Purchase Award: Michael Evart’s Horsehair Pot and Kacie Waters-Heflin’s Pas de Basque will be purchased for the UMW Galleries’ permanent collection.

Participating artists: Morgan Wallace, Kacie Waters-Heflin, Lily Radolinski, Evelyn Savaria, Lauren Rauch, Rachel Harkrader, Jade Brooks, Lillian Schloeder, Dominique Giles, Michelle Pierson, Hannah Morgan, Michael Evart, Dave Hansen, Maddox Palmer, Hannah McConaughy, Taylor White, Eliza Nolen, Laura Bufano, Megan Crockett, May Shorten Townley, Noah Enders, Courtney Greathouse and Christina Beckham.

The exhibition was guest juried by Sandra Gibson and Luis Recoder, artists whose work explores the relationship between avant-garde film practice and the incorporation of moving images and time-based media into the museum and art gallery. The artists have exhibited and performed nationally and internationally at the Whitney Museum of American Art, MoMA PS1, The Kitchen, Anthology Film Archives, Sundance Film Festival, Toronto International Film Fesival and Tate Modern, among others.

The Annual Student Art Exhibition is on view through April 29, 2016.
