Artwork by Cameron University student Brianna Barry and faculty member Katherine Liontas-Warren has been selected for inclusion in the 51st Annual National Drawing and Small Sculpture Show hosted by Del Mar College in Corpus Christi, Texas. The show, which attracts works by contemporary artists from across the country, is judged by a guest juror of national stature and will be on exhibit from February 17 through May 5 in Del Mar’s Joseph A. Cain Memorial Gallery.
“I was elated when I found out Brianna was accepted into the 51st Annual National Drawing and Small Sculpture show,” says Liontas-Warren. “Brianna is a very talented artist, and her love for printmaking is evident in her craftsmanship and in her ability to tell a story. Our acceptance into this show is a tremendous honor. The Juror, Carlos Llerena Aguirre, has published woodcuts in international journals, books, magazines, children's books, and newspapers. His woodcuts are in the Library of Congress Permanent collection, and he is currently a tenured professor at the University of Miami.”
Barry, an art major from Oklahoma City, created a linocut print titled “The Mad Hatter.” This is her first national exhibition. “I am honored to be accepted into this exhibition and glad that this piece will represent my body of work for others to see,” Barry says.
Liontas Warren, Professor of Art, will have two drawings in the show, “I Am Home” and “Catching Light.” Both were rendered using charcoal and graphite.
