Student Annual 2020

The 2020 Student Annual was cut short this year because of the pandemic but that doesn’t mean we can’t celebrate our talented students! Every year, we invite a juror from an outside organization to select the work included in the Student Annual show as well as several prize winners. This year, Christy Davis, Curator of Exhibitions at the Canton Museum of Art juried the show, which was selected from over 100 submissions from School of Art undergraduate and graduate students. 

Congratulations to all the students selected for the exhibition! 

Graduate students: Katlyn Baird, Claire Bowman, Katie Burkett, Maria Camera-Smith, Susanna Harris, Paige Koenig, David Kruk, Catherine Lentini, Jennifer Masley, Diana Pemberton, Meagan Smith, Gilbert Sutherland, Kellie Sylvester, and Jody L. Vankeuren.
