ULM faculty member and student compete at regional exhibition

The Department of Art at the University of Louisiana at Monroe has announced that a student and a faculty member have had paintings accepted in competition at a regional exhibition in Alexandria.

Representing the University is Jeremy H. Polk of Winnsboro, a junior painting major, and Robert G. Ward, professor of painting and drawing. Polk is showing two figurative watercolors, while Ward is displaying an acrylic on canvas refigured landscape as well as a non-objective diptych.

These works of art are being shown in conjunction with the 35th Annual Tom Peyton Memorial Arts Festival. Artists were invited to submit in competition three recent paintings, sculptures, drawings, or original prints to be jurored by Professor Henri Linton, chairman of the Department of Art at the University of Arkansas-Pine Bluff. From these submissions, Professor Linton curated an exhibition of what he deemed to be the more superior entries.

The ULM paintings and other accepted entries will be on view at the exhibition area of the First United Methodist Church, 2727 Jackson Street in Alexandria, through February 18.
