SAU’s Art Department announces 2018 Fall Art Competition winners

fall art show
Congratulations to the students who were selected and won awards at the 2018 Fall Art Competition! Works were submitted on Thursday, Dec. 6, and the competition was held on Wednesday, Dec. 7. Our juror was Mark Adkins, SAU Art alumnus and Marketing Project Manager in the SAU Office of Marketing & Communications. Mr. Adkins spent the day selecting works for the exhibit, choosing award winners and giving a short presentation about the work at 4 p.m. He encouraged students to keep trying in competitions because it took him three to get his work selected for a semester show when he was an undergraduate student. He praised students for their ability to blend strong techniques with creative ideas.

The 2018 Fall Art exhibition will be on display through Monday, Jan. 21. During the school year, the Ganton Art Gallery is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, and 1 to 5 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. The gallery is closed for the holidays. We look forward to having you visit.
