Tech faculty, staff, alumni chosen for national exhibition
Louisiana Tech will be well represented in a national exhibition that will begin Saturday, March 2. Two faculty members, two students and four alumni from Tech will have their work exhibited at the Masur Museum of Art’s 50th Annual Juried Competition in Monroe. This competition showcases contemporary artists throughout the United States working in any medium. This year’s juror, George T.M. Shackelford, the senior deputy director of the Kimbell Art Museum in Ft. Worth, selected 41 artists out of the 291 who entered. “The School of Art at Louisiana Tech has long supported the important role that the Masur Museum plays in the cultural life of northeast Louisiana,” said Jonathan Donehoo, director of the School of Art. “We are indeed proud of our faculty, students and alumni whose work was selected to be a part of this exhibition.” School of Art faculty members Marie Bukowski and Frank Hamrick will each exhibit two pieces of their work. Gary Guinigundo, a photography major from Monroe, and Diana Synatzske, a master’s of fine arts candidate from Ruston, will also showcase their work. Alumni Brandy Coons, Rachul McClintic, Colin Todd and Caroline Youngblood were also chosen for the event. An opening reception will be held from 5:30-8 p.m. Saturday, March 2 at the Masur Museum, and the exhibition will run from March 2 to June 8.
