SPRINGFIELD — The Lincoln Land Community College 2022 Juried Student Art Show is now on display through May 6, 9 a.m.-5 p.m. in the Trutter Museum/James S. Murray Gallery, located on the upper floor of Menard Hall.
Winners of various awards were announced at an opening reception. Skyler Voss of Chatham was awarded Best of Show. Nathan Atkinson of Taylorville won the Digital Award. Miriam Carter of Springfield won the 3D Award and Peyton Cox of Spaulding the 2D Award. Vlada Popyk of Springfield won the Art History Award.
Crux May of Edinburg was honored with the Alexis Wernsing Pinnacle Award. This award was established in memory of Wernsing, a 2011 LLCC graduate. The winner is chosen by LLCC art faculty and goes to the student who best embodies Wernsing’s qualities of striving for the best in all academic endeavors without complaint and no matter the context.
Artist Amanda Grieve, an LLCC alumna, served as juror for the show. She commented, “I want to congratulate the award winners and accepted artists in this year’s show. I would also like to encourage all of the students who entered pieces into this juried exhibit to continue to hone their creative voices. You should all be proud of yourselves for having created artworks under such unique conditions as those presented the last couple of years.”
