Owens Recognizes Students For Creative Excellence in Artistic Expression

Jennifer Bandeen's ink pen portrait received Best of Show honors. Three Owens Community College students were recently honored for their creative excellence in art as the Walter E. Terhune Art Gallery held its annual Juried Student Art Exhibition.

"Owens' Center for Fine and Performing Arts is proud to have featured some of the finest works of art produced by our students," said Wynn Perry, Owens Adjunct Faculty member who curates the Walter E. Terhune Art Gallery. "The creative works submitted by Owens students were truly outstanding and epitomized the meaning of artistic expression. Events such as the Juried Student Art Exhibition provide great opportunities for students to apply the knowledge obtained within the classroom into a real world setting."

A five-person panel, comprised of three fine and performing arts faculty members, including Perry, and two Owens students selected the winning entries based on creative excellence. The Juried Student Art Exhibition was open to all students enrolled within fine and performing arts courses.

The show featured 80 pieces of artwork created by more than 30 students within the areas of painting, drawing, graphic and interior design, photography, ceramics, and sculpture. Students were allowed to enter a total of three pieces.

Jennifer Bandeen of Perrysburg (associate of arts - general concentration) took Best of Show with her ink pen portrait titled "Scenes of Life." Erin Hearndon of Perrysburg (photography) took First Place Two-Dimensional for her black and white photograph "Untitled." Paige Freeseman of Bowling Green (English) won First Place Three-Dimensional for her 'Untitled' abstract ceramic piece.
