Of the 24 works on display, Kenny George, M.F.A. graduate student, took first prize with a double photograph of himself. Second prize went to Ryder Haske, sophomore, for his work in photography, and Sara Hubbs, M.F.A. grad student, was awarded third price for her video titled, Arizona Wall. Other awards have been given for work in ceramics, design, drawing, painting, photography, and sculpture. This year's judge is Victoria Reis, executive director of Transformer Gallery located in Washington, D.C. A complete list of award winners is available through the gallery.
