Colby-Sawyer is pleased to announce this year’s Gladys Greenbaum Meyers ’39 Juried Student Art Exhibition scholarship recipients. Recipients were selected by faculty based on the conceptual and technical quality of their work in a variety of disciplines, including ceramics, drawing, graphic design, illustration, painting, photography, printmaking, sculpture, watercolor and mixed media.
Edith B. Long Scholarships in Art Awards
Established in 1964 in memory of "Coco" Long ’64, these $1,000 scholarships are awarded each year to returning students who demonstrate outstanding ability and interest in art.
Charlotte Cobb Stahl Scholarship Fund Awards
Established in 1994 in memory of a member of the Class of 1951, these $1,051 scholarships are awarded each year to students enrolled in the fine arts course of study.
Nancy Pierce Williams Scholarship Awards
Established by her family in memory of Nancy Pierce Williams, these scholarships range from $1,000-$2,000 are awarded each year to students enrolled in the fine arts course of study.
Due to the COVID-19 stay-at-home mandate, students digitally submitted their five works for adjudication by faculty. The opening reception and exhibition, traditionally held at the Sawyer Fine & Performing Arts Center, was cancelled.
“The School of Arts & Sciences did not want the event cancellation to impact students’ ability to participate in the juried process,” said Professor and Sawyer Center Gallery Director Loretta Barnett, who has curated more than 30 student art exhibitions over her 42-year tenure at the college. “It was important to faculty that we continue to provide students with the opportunity to demonstrate their breadth of talent and skills and earn valuable scholarships. We thank all of the students who participated this year.”
