Tess Dudek, a University of Hartford sophomore from Windsor, won top honors at this year’s Alexander A. Goldfarb Student Exhibition during a ceremony held in the University of Hartford’s Joseloff Gallery on Feb. 17.
Dudek was one of two students to win Purchase Awards in the amount of $1,000, made possible through the Alexander A. Goldfarb Endowment Trust. The winning students’ artwork becomes part of the University’s permanent collection. Dudek had two paintings selected for inclusion in this year’s Goldfarb Exhibition, including her award-winning self-portrait.
The annual juried Alexander Goldfarb Student Exhibition and awards are open to all undergraduate and graduate students of the University of Hartford, in all schools and colleges. Dudek, an English major, is believed to be the first student from outside the Hartford Art School to win.
The exhibition, which is free and open to the public, will continue at the Joseloff Gallery through March 20. For more information, please call 860.768.4090 or visit www.joseloffgallery.org.
