Patrick Henry Community College and the PHCC Foundation recently presented nine students with awards during the 22nd annual Student Art Show Reception.
The awards, which are funded by the PHCC Foundation, were conferred to the winners by Vice President of Institutional Advancement Dr. Greg Hodges. The awards range in value from $25 to $150. The purchase prize, which is an award of $150, has served over the years to build a collection of student artwork that is on display in the Learning Resource Center and across the PHCC Campus.
Honorable mentions went to “Magnolia” by Randi Robertson of Rocky Mount; “Three Shapes Still Lyfe” by Catherine Oliver from Patrick Springs; “Study of ‘Trees in Autumn by Georgia O’Keefe” by Roslyn Wingett from Collinsville; and “Night Mind” by Joni Crawford from Ridgeway.
Awards of Excellence were presented to “Study of ‘Woman Holding a Balance by Jan Vermeer” by Casey Elkins from Stuart; “Day Lily 2 – 4” by John Christian from Martinsville; and “Still Life” by Timothy Ross from Bassett.
Best-In-Show was “Mid-Tone Study” by Keri Stegall from Fieldale.
The purchase prize was awarded to “Drenched in Star Dust” by Erin Duffy from Bassett.
The reception and awards ceremony kicked off the Student Art Show which is on display in the Walker Fine Art Center at PHCC in Martinsville through May 15. The show features over 30 pieces submitted by 25 student artists from across the region.
