The President's Exhibition: A Juried competition of Student Work

Twenty AUK art and design students were honored at a reception at AUK, where President Winifred Thompson greeted and chatted with the students and their families, congratulating them on being singled out for excellence. All around, the student work was showcased on the walls of the AUK President's office.

The competition for the exhibition is held twice yearly; student work is submitted by their professors from ART and Graphic Design classes. The artwork is juried, and the winning paintings, drawings and designs are hung in the President's office, where they will remain for 6 months.

Work included in the President's Exhibition is made during the previous academic semester as part of regular classwork and represents the best results of the courses offered.

Art History and Studio Art Professor Sharon Orleans Lawrence and Graphic Design Professor Marcella Kulchitsky manage the competition and the President's Exhibition in conjunction with the Arts and Humanities Division of AUK.
