Owens Recognizes Students For Creative Excellence in Artistic Expression
Three Owens Community College students were recently honored for their creative excellence in art as the Walter E. Terhune Art Gallery held its inaugural Juried Student Art Exhibition. The event marked the first-ever competitive student art show in the Walter E. Terhune Art Gallery.
"Owens' Center for Fine and Performing Arts is proud to have featured the finest works of art produced by our Fall Semester students," said Dr. Brian Bethune, Owens Chair of Fine and Performing Arts. "The creative works submitted by Owens students were truly outstanding and epitomized the true meaning of artistic expression. Events such as the Juried Student Art Exhibition are great opportunities for students to apply the knowledge obtained within the classroom into a real world setting."
A panel of five judges, comprising Owens faculty and students, selected the winning entries based on creative excellence. The Juried Student Art Exhibition was open to all Owens students enrolled within Fine and Performing Arts courses.
The show featured artwork by more than 75 students within the areas of painting, drawing, graphic and interior design, photography, ceramics and sculpture. Students were allowed to enter a total of three featured pieces.
First place in the juried show went to Maggie Ehrmin of Toledo (Associate of Arts, General Concentration) for her mixed media work using metals and wood. Holly DeSelmes of Curtice (Supervision Major) earned second place honors with her traditional still-life oil painting, while Michelle Hainen of Bowling Green (Post-Secondary Option) received third place for her charcoal drawing of a flower.
