Karisa Doane, a junior from Galesburg, was awarded Best in Show for her painting, “Crazy,” at Monmouth College’s annual Student Art Exhibition and Competition.
The painting is a self-portrait of Doane, captured on a day when she said she was in a “crazy” mood.
The competition’s other main prize, the Waltershausen Sculpture Award, went to Jeremy Thurlby, a non-traditional student from Montgomery, for his work “Industrialization.”
Other first-place honors were won by seniors Patrick Messenger of Galesburg for design and Hillary Broms of Peoria for drawing. Also winning were juniors Lindsie Pettie of Sherrard for painting, Denys Palmer of Naperville for ceramics, Brennan Probst of Wilmette for photography and Danica Rogers of Rochelle for sculpture.
Matt Nelson, a 2001 Monmouth College graduate, served as juror.
The student exhibit will be on display through Dec. 8 in the college’s Len G. Everett Gallery, located in Hewes Library.
