Lynn Herrick Sharp Award ExhibitionLynn Herrick Sharp Award ExhibitionThe Delaware ContemporaryOn View through April 26, The Lynn Herrick Sharp Award Show presents work by the three Fine Art BFA award recipients: Ana Jackson Chaves and the honorable mention recipients are Madison Bacon and Andrew Gayda. In September 2009, Lynn Sharp established the Lynn Herrick Sharp Award in support of the Fine Arts program at UD's Department of Art and Design to help the recipient produce and document their work. The award is presented to an art major working in photography, sculpture, printmaking or painting. During the student's junior year, portfolios are submitted to the fine art faculty for award consideration. Ana Jackson Chaves uses ceramics, wood, steel, and paint to explore the complex interconnectivity of humans and the environment. Madison Bacon's work in video, animation, and illustration delve into stories about diverse characters that are either misrepresented or not represented in commercial media. Andrew Gayda's sculptures and videos are inspired by the offbeat creative insanity and wit he finds in pop culture. His work embodies humor and playfulness, the working parts of a fantastical imagination. 4/6/2018 9:00:00 PM4/7/2018 1:00:00 AMFalse<img alt="Lynn Herrick Sharp Award" src="/Images%20Events/LynnSharp_Rotator.jpg" style="BORDER:0px solid;" />
