Awards Presented at Hartwick College Student Art Exhibition

October 29, 2009

Hartwick College's Annual Juried Student Art Exhibition opened with a reception from 4:30-6:30 p.m. on November 5, 2009 in the Foreman Gallery, Anderson Center for the Arts, on the Hartwick campus.

Each fall, a call for entries is sent to students across the Hartwick College campus. Only 75 percent of entries are chosen for the exhibition. Marianne Weil, professor of art and sculpture at CUNY Staten Island, has served as juror for the 2009 exhibition. Students submitted artwork in nine categories--painting, sculpture, ceramics, drawing, glass, photography, digital art, design, and printmaking--from which the final exhibit was selected.

Awards, sponsored by Williamsburg Paints and Golden Artist Colors, were presented during the opening reception. Winners were:

  • Sculpture – Stephanie Berube, “Bones”
  • Glass – Eric Pedersen, “Wobble in Space”
  • Design – Courtney Rotzler, “Landscape”
  • Painting – Marge Gormley, “Untitled”
  • Digital – Ben Wronkoski, “Circle Up”

  • Photo – Dominique Thomas, “Untitled 2”
  • Ceramics – Tim Irwin, “Hanging On”
