Art of Competition

VALDOSTA — Fifty-seven Valdosta State University students will find their works included in the annual Student Art Competition, opening Monday night.

A sneak peek of some accepted works reveals a show that demonstrates the strengths of VSU art students as individuals as well as the VSU Art program as a whole.

Alan MacTaggart, a Georgia Regents University professor of art and humanities, judged the show.

VSU students presented MacTaggart with plenty of choices. Seventy-seven students entered 205 works. He selected 107 works by 57 students, with about a half being three-dimensional pieces.

From the juried works, winners will be announced during Monday evening’s reception, with prizes totaling $500.
