Hartwick Names Winners of Fall Pine Lake Photography Contest

December 1, 2017

Winners of the fall 2017 Pine Lake Photography Competition were announced recently at the annual Holiday Dinner held in the Vaudevillian at Hartwick’s Pine Lake Environmental Campus.

Twenty four images were submitted for the competition, which was based on the 2017-18 Hartwick College Campus Theme, “Innovation.” This term, all entries originated from students in Professor of Art Katharine Kreisher’s “FYS: Women in Photography” class and 2-D Studio Art Technician/Lecturer in Art Nick George’s “Intro to Digital Photography” class.

Kappa Pi, the international student art honor society, and the Pine Lake Club organized the show. Serving as judges for the competition were Assistant Professor of Art Rich Barlow, Assistant Professor of Art & Art History Joe von Stengel, and Associate Professor of Art & Art History Doug Zullo.

The following students were awarded prizes based on careful consideration and selection by judges from all images submitted:

  • Zsofia Polak ’18, 1st prize, “Alone”
  • Edra Colbeck ’20, 2nd prize, “Creeping Vista”
  • Trinity Mattice ’21, 3rd prize, “Everglass”

Honorable mentions from the event included: Madison Abrams ’19 for “Blurred Vision,” Troy Amegashie ’21 for “Pine Lake Vibes,” Analyse Coutlée ’21 for “Gentle Waters,” and Jade Walker ’21 for “Fall Day.”

The winning submissions and all entrants’ work will be on display until the middle of Spring Term 2018.
