Marshall University’s Fourth Annual National Juried Exhibition occurred Thursday at the Visual Arts Center Gallery.

The event consisted of 27 pieces of art from 18 exhibitors.

The pieces of art were of different mediums. Some mediums included sculptures, paintings, photography and mixed media.

Juror Arif Kahn, Marie Price Ratrie curator of art at the Clay Center for the Arts and Sciences, gave the Juror’s Choice award to Jane Notides-Benzing for her two pieces called “Whirlwind Nights” and “Woodwinds.”

Notides-Benzing said she has been painting and drawling since elementary school.

It is a high level of art”

“Now being an older person, I’m retired, and I have much more time to devote to my art,” Notides-Benzing said.

Notides-Benzing will receive a $200 reward.

Honorable Mention awards were also giving out to Jim Toub’s mixed media piece “Mapping Invisible Cities-2” and to Maurice Mufson’s photo “Light and Solitude.“

Megan Schultz, gallery director at the Visual Arts Center, said the artists submitted work from as far as Nebraska, New York State, Michigan, Virginia, Ohio and West Virginia.

The audience included Marshall University students and faculty.

Marshall art student Liza Caldwell said it was more than what she expected.

“It is a high level of art,” Caldwell said.

The Visual Arts Center Gallery is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and the art from the exhibition can be seen until Feb. 20.
