Graduate student Jude Anogwih’s mixed media painting, Underneath Downtown, was selected for a Cutting Edge Award in the 27th Annual Juried Art Exhibition hosted by the International Society of Experimental Artists (ISEA). The award is one of seven cash awards in the juried competition. The exhibition, which ran in September and October, was held in the LowellArts Gallery in Lowell, Michigan. A catalog of the exhibition artists’ works has also been published.

The juror was Joseph Becherer, director of the Snite Museum of Art at the University of Notre Dame and formerly the founding director and curator of the sculpture program at Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

The ISEA characterizes itself as having “a rich history of celebrating innovation through the arts, encouraging artists to explore new ideas, techniques, and subject matter, with no rules.”
