McDaniel College’s Department of Art and Art History presents “The Kathryn E. Wentz Juried Undergraduate Exhibition,” April 8 through April 18 in the Rice Gallery in Peterson Hall. The artists’ reception will be held from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on April 10.
The exhibition is open to all students, who may submit up to five artworks they have done while studying at McDaniel College. Professional artists and art educators serve as the exhibition’s jurors each year. The judges select the award winners for the eight awards that are given: Best in Show, First, Second, and Third place, three Honorable Mentions, and a Foundation Award that is open to work done in Drawing One (Perceptual Drawing and Design). Chloe Watson and Bobby Coleman, both McDaniel alumni, are this year’s judges; the winners will be announced during the opening reception.
Watson, a 2007 McDaniel graduate, went on to receive her MFA in Interdisciplinary Art from the Mount Royal Graduate School of Art at MICA in 2010. Chloe has been a resident artist at the Vermont Studio Center in Johnson, VT and the Wassaic Project in Wassaic, NY. She has taught studio art courses at McDaniel College, the Maryland Institute College of Art, and the University of Maine at Farmington. She currently lives in Baltimore, MD and is the Operations Manager at Charm City Cakes.
Coleman, a 2009 McDaniel graduate, went on to receive his MFA in Painting and Studio Art from American University in Washington, D.C. in 2011. A Baltimore-based painter, his large, abstract paintings deal with themes of graffiti, doodling, building, and mark manipulation. His paintings have been exhibited in Maryland, D.C., Virginia, Michigan, California and Ohio.
