Stilwell Student Exhibition to Showcase Student Art
The annual juried student art show recognizes artistic talent and creative work from USD’s College of Fine Arts students.
The juror for this year's exhibition is Cody Henrichs, artist and curator of the Washington Pavilion Visual Arts Center. Henrichs is also the founder/director of Coffey Contemporary Arts Gallery in Luverne, Minnesota.
“We have some of the most talented student artists state-wide in our program,” Amy Fill, gallery director, explained. “The variety of creative expression, as well as the uniqueness each student demonstrates in their work, will, without a doubt, present an exciting challenge for Henrichs.”
Each year over 75 students enter more than 200 individual works for the adjudication process. This is a competitive exhibition with over $2,000 in prizes to be awarded.
Awards will include the Best of Show, Faculty Award, President, Provost and Dean of Students Purchase Awards, The College of Fine Arts Dean’s Award, Carol and Tom Geu Award and the Gladys Stilwell Freshman/Sophomore Award.
The exhibit is named after USD’s former chair and professor of art Wilber Stilwell, his wife, Gladys, and the Stilwell family, who continue to provide support for the exhibition. Stilwell joined the USD faculty immediately after receiving his master’s degree from the University of Iowa in 1941 and served as a member of the art faculty at USD for 32 years and as department chair for 26 years.
The 35th annual Stilwell Student Awards Exhibition will be open January 22 through February 19.
The John A. Day Gallery in the Warren M. Lee Center for the Fine Arts is open to the public, free of charge, from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. For more information about this exhibition, please contact Amy Fill at firstname.lastname@example.org.
