Works on Paper is a juried exhibition for artists living within a 40-mile radius of Dayton, Ohio.
This year, 91 artists from Dayton and the surrounding areas submitted 237 pieces, from which the juror, Elizabeth Carney, Assistant Curator at the Akron Art Museum, chose 40 artworks, representing 35 artists.
Carney wrote, “Paper is a varied and beautiful material with a long history. The artworks in this year’s ‘Works on Paper’ exhibition each communicate an intentional and studied approach to not only image-making, but also object-making. We think of paper as two-dimensional, but it in fact has depth and texture, no matter how fine. The selected artists make use of the nuances of their papers of choice, having crafting cohesive artworks with unique voices.”
Carney also selected the winners of the United Art and Education Awards, totaling $1,100. Award winners are:
First Place: John Hankiewicz, Fruit 1
Second Place: Michele BonDurant, Exposed to Loneliness
Third Place: Doug McLarty, Dragon
Honorable Mentions: Sean Wilkinson, Library #13; Molly Christian, Pouty Girl
