Two students in the Department of Art & Art History, Nicole Thrower and Ajané Williams, have had their work accepted into nationally juried shows.
Thrower, who is pursuing her Bachelor of Fine Arts with a concentration in print media, is one of 13 award-winners in the Rare Artist Contest, a national contest presented by the EveryLife Foundation for Rare Diseases. The EveryLife Foundation for Rare Diseases is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, nonpartisan organization dedicated to advocacy and scientific advancement in addressing rare illnesses.
Williams is pursuing a Bachelor of Fine Arts with a concentration in painting. Her monoprint/collage, “Searching for my Reflections/Filling in the Gaps within my Soul I,” was selected by juror Ryan O'Malley, associate professor of art at Texas A&M University in Corpus Christi, Texas, for the printmaking juried exhibition presented by the In Art Gallery, an online gallery based out of Edwardsville, Illinois.
Last July, a mixed-media abstract work by Williams, “Pandemonium II,” was featured in an exhibition at Gallery C3, a gallery in Charlotte’s South End district.
