SCC Announces Art Show Winners

Stanly Community College (SCC) announced the winners of the eighth annual art show during an opening reception held on March 24, 2015. The College encourages all students to showcase their creative artwork with other artists and viewers. The artwork was displayed in the Learning Resources Center located in the Snyder building.

Scott Callicutt, a graphic designer, was selected to judge the artwork on display which included oil paintings, pencil drawings, stoneware, digital art, photography, and much more. Mr. Callicutt’s roots are in fine art and while he currently works in the field of graphic design, he also does freelance illustration and works in traditional mediums such as pencil, watercolor, acrylic, and oil paints.

First place went to Brandi Walker with “Arctic Sunshine” (acrylic). Ms. Walker commented, “It was a last minute decision to enter the art show. I do enjoy art and consider it a hobby. I’m very glad my piece won.”

Second place was given to Amy Earnhardt with “Wonder” (ink drawing). This entry was also selected by SCC President Dr. Brenda Kays as the “President’s Choice” artwork.

Third place went to Teresa Hunsucker for “Fruit Cellar” (stoneware). Honorable mentions include: Josh Jenkins with “Spartan” (illustration); Cheyenne Johnston with “Starburst” (stained glass) and Andria Lambert with “Waiting for a Ride” (photography).
