In April, the 45th Annual Student Art Exhibition occurred at the the Tulsa Community College (TCC) Center for Creativity Event Hall.
Dwayne Pass, TCC associate professor, who teaches Print Making and Figure Drawing, opened the exhibition.
“This year, 25 art division students received $2,200 in awards from the TCC Foundation,” he said.
Rhonda Davis, TCC assistant professor, who teaches Art History I and II, and Fundamentals I classes, added; “Thank you very much for coming to the exhibition and your support.”
Then, the students obtained their awards by categories “Honorable Mention” and “Talentship.”
Anna Hicks, majoring in chemistry, received the “Talentship” award for her work “Peaceful Still Life.”
“I was taking art classes for fun,” said Hicks. “Art is my minor.”
“I am so excited,” she continued. “I was not expecting to get an award, I entered the show contest at last minute.”
“I am in my second year with TCC,” Hicks added. “I will be transferring to Northeastern State University (NSU.)”
“TCC is very beneficial and it is a good transition from high school to a four-year college,” she concluded.
