G. Scot Stephens won Best of Show recently in the NW campus 32nd Annual Visual Arts Students Juried Exhibition, judged by a local artist.

Nancy Lamb, who is associated with Artspace 111 Gallery in Fort Worth, recognized several student works on display in the Lakeview Gallery until May 2.

The student works are presented “salon style,” which means that all the wall space is filled with work
from top to bottom rather than just at eye level, Eduardo Aguilar, NW Campus professor of art, said.

The 3-D works are displayed on pedestals, in cases or set directly on the gallery floor.

Untitled by Geoff Ford, encompasses the floor with the application of duct tape.

Stephens work, www, is an acrylic on canvas painting.

First-place winner in the 2-D category was Caroline Peña’s Up Close and Personal, acrylic on canvas. Peña said she did not plan to enter the piece because she did not think it was good enough.

She prefaced the invitation she gave her parents to the reception saying, “I’m not going to win anything.
Just come to see all the great art,” she said.

Other winners in the 2-D were Bernardo Ladinos’ Self-Portrait, acrylic on paper, second place; and Patsy Stark’s Harry in Studio, acrylic on canvas, third place.

Barbara Arabian, Margie Harry, Angela Newton, Michael Randall, Bob Lynch, Griffin Gregor and Ford all received honorable mentions.

Gwen Rhine’s Cometa di morte, a small ceramic piece, won first place in the 3-D category. Rhine said another class member inspired her.

“ I like to experiment and try new techniques,” she said.

Also taking home prizes were Sue Jackson, Tilt, porcelain, second place; and Cyndy Ritchie, Black/Red, ceramic, third place. Honorable mention prizes were given to Rosemary Rector, Mary-Alice Helman, Charlotte Owens, Chambley Hill, Adam Trimble and Kay Wells.

Asel Art Supply, Inc. provided $50, $25 and $20 gift certificates for the top three winners in each category.
In addition, the first place winner in each category received a $100 tuition award for the fall semester from Art Encounter, the NW Campus art club.

Lamb is primarily a painter but also works with ceramics and multi-media.

NW Art department instructors served as a pre-jury for the exhibit, selecting what would be accepted or rejected from the submitted student works produced during the fall ’06 and spring ’07 semesters, Aguilar said.

Lakeview Gallery hours are 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday-Thursday, 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Friday and 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Saturday.

Some of the student pieces currently on display are available for purchase.
