At the opening night reception, this past Friday, Michael Fontaine won second prize for a charcoal drawing of his grandfather in the Fifth Annual Colleges of Worcester Consortium Art Exhibition. Michael also had a second piece in the show, a painting titled Francois. Both of his works demonstrated technical strength as well as a novel conceptual approach to his subjects.
Three WSC students also took home honorable mentions: Alicia Arsenault, Tea Pot I (a sculpture of found objects), Joyce Michaud, Holga Connection (artists book) andJaclyn Hubacz, Luminary (bent wood and paper sculpture).
College participation is coordinated by Catherine Wilcox-Titus, PhD, assistant professor of art history at Worcester State College. The exhibition is sponsored in part by the Colleges of Worcester Consortium, Inc. and is free and open to the public.
