Goldfarb Award Winners Announced
Emily Chionchio, a senior majoring in visual communication design, was one of two Hartford Art School students to win this year’s Alexander A. Goldfarb Purchase Awards. She received the award for “Garden of Suburbia,” a one-minute, stop-action video that sets the story of Adam and Eve in a suburban kitchen.
Mary McCarthy, a junior majoring in painting, won the Purchase Award for her self-portrait, an oil painting.
The awards were announced Wednesday evening at the opening reception for the student art exhibition. Chionchio and McCarthy were awarded $1,000 each, and their winning entries will be added to the permanent collection of the Joseloff Gallery.
Three other awards also were announced at Wednesday’s opening reception:
- Jennifer Sanford, a sophomore, received the first annual Dean’s Award for her untitled installation.
- Sophomore Patrick Scully received an Award of Distinction for his ceramic work, “Dove in Paradise.”
- Rachael Standig, also a sophomore, won an Award of Distinction for her sculpture, “Shelter of Civilization.”
The Annual Student Exhibition will run through Sunday, April 9. Joseloff Gallery hours are Tuesday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday from noon to 4 p.m. For more information, call the Joseloff Gallery at 860.768.4090.
