Roanoke College’s Olin Hall Galleries has 66 works of art on display by 44 artists with regional connections in the 2013 Juried Biennial Exhibition.
Held every two years, the Biennial serves as the Roanoke Valley’s principal juried art exhibit. The Biennial is open to artists who live within a 150-mile radius of Roanoke College.
Margot Norton, curatorial associate at the New Museum of Contemporary Art in New York, judged this year’s show. First place went to Blacksburg artist Travis Head for his drawing “Reading List Yeah!” Head received $500 and will have a solo exhibition in the college’s Smoyer Gallery during the 2013-2014 exhibition season. The $300 second prize went to Roanoke artist Brett LaGue’s “Parting on Cordial Terms” and the $100 third prize went to Roanoke artist Melissa Humphrey’s “Iceblink.” Roanoke artist Deborah Dreyer and Christiansburg artist Jeffrey Rowland received $50 honorable mentions.
The show, which takes up both the Olin and Smoyer galleries, will remain up until April 5. Gallery hours are 1 to 4 p.m. daily, excluding holidays. For more information, call 375-2332 or visit roanoke.edu/olingallery.
