Awardees are Elizabeth Alexander, Emee Barrow, Morgan Deems, Kayla Huguley, Heather Orlando, Greg Randall, Lori Taylor, Kristen Tcherneshoff, Shannon Thacker, and Joi West.
Department faculty members use a jury process to select students to conduct research and produce a new body of art work specifically for this show. The fellowship funding supports both research and production costs.
A broad range of studio media is represented in the exhibit including painting, printmaking, sculpture, photography and glass. Some artists have worked collaboratively and several have combined media processes in their work. Funding support for the Sarah Moody Gallery of Art comes from the Department of Art and Art History and the College of Arts and Sciences at The University of Alabama.
