The Clemson National Print and Drawing Exhibition is a national competition that holds national prominence. The exhibit will run from February 22 through April 2, 2011 at the Lee Gallery, Department of Art, Clemson University.

Still Standing at 442 by Rebecca Dierickx-Taylor"I am thrilled to have been juried into this exhibition,” says Dierickx-Taylor. “The Art Department faculty at Cameron University has enabled me to achieve this while still being a student. The instructors have given me the skills and knowledge needed to create my art. Along with those skills, they have encouraged me to push myself beyond my own boundaries. I consider each of the instructors as my mentor. Katherine Liontas-Warren’s encouragement for me to enter competitions has enabled my art to be exposed and accepted on a national level. "
