Out & About: Women artists shine in Seton Hill University exhibit
Art exhibition jurors often say how difficult it is to choose pieces for a show, not to mention the added difficulty of choosing those deserving of awards.
Imagine the difficulty, then, of having multiple jurors come to a meeting of the minds.
That was the scenario for Seton Hill University’s biennial Regional Women Art Exhibit, running through Oct. 30 in the Harlan Gallery in the school’s downtown Greensburg art center.
Members of an upper level art history seminar taught by Maureen Vissat Kochanek served as jurors.
During an Oct. 3 reception, juror and junior art therapy major Kenzie Zoccoli said that class members brought varying perspectives influenced by age, gender, experience and taste to the task.
“We all argued for the pieces we loved,” she said.
From 150 works submitted by regional women artists, 59 pieces from about 40 artists were chosen. The pieces represent various 2-D and 3-D mediums.
Also at the reception, gallery director Todd Keyser announced these awards:
First place: Kristy Dubinsky, “Josephine’s Journey”
Second: Nora Thompson, “Women” series
Third: Molly Zindash, “Mother”
Honorable Mentions: Linda Kaulius and Jasmine Lear, “Mindfull”; Barbara Kubala, “Evolved From a Doodle in a Board Meeting,” and Mary Ellen Ranieri, “My Boss Told Me To Go Home and Crochet Doilies.”
