Gray Creative Arts Award in Visual Arts

Awarded to a full-time student completing third year of a Visual Arts degree program who excels in one of the following areas (to be rotated annually):

1. Two-dimensional art (drawing, painting, photography, printmaking, etc.)

2. Three-dimensional art (sculpture, holography, performance)

3. Time-based art (video, sound) If there are no outstanding applicants in a particular area of study, the award can be rotated to the next area of study, e.g., if there are no applicants for two-dimensional art, the application process could be open to three-dimensional art. 

Third-year students will be invited to apply by January 31, 2016.

Students are to provide between five and eight images of work in the medium to which the award is directed that year. Additionally, applicants will submit a proposal describing their work in the year ahead, including an objective and a CV. The selection committee will be comprised of the Chair of Visual Arts, one faculty member in the Department of Visual Arts and another art professional, e.g., curator at the McIntosh Gallery or a community artist. This award was established by Bill Gray (BA Honors Business '70) and wife Nancy Gray.
