Approximately 40 works by emerging student artists are featured in the Annual Awards Show at GW's Luther W. Brady Art Gallery. The exhibition juxtaposes traditional pieces alongside more innovative works. For example, the paintings display a range of styles from the colorful dabs of paint in Anne Letterer's Bench People, to the sweeping application of oil stick and collage on paper in Valentine Wolly's Memories. The featured photographs also demonstrate different styles through an exploration of the technical possibilities of photography. Pamela Nabholz's images are painterly and ethereal, while Danielle DiRosario's photographs of the human body border on abstraction. Particularly remarkable is the variety of ceramics in the exhibition. The works in clay are sculptural and engaging. Shelley Stevens' work, for example, plays off the relationship between found pieces of wood and complementary ceramics.
Awards have been given for work in aquarelle painting, ceramics, drawing, painting, photography, printmaking and sculpture. This year's judge is George Hemphill, owner of Hemphill Fine Arts, who also selected the works for inclusion in the exhibition.
