Bay College is pleased to present the award winners for our very first virtual Student Art Exhibition. Each year, Bay College hosts a gallery showing of the current students’ work. This year, we were unable to hold a reception and award ceremony since the Bay College campus is closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but award winners were still chosen and we are celebrating our art students’ success!

Each semester a “Purchase Prize Award” is given to one student per course. The work chosen becomes part of Bay College’s Art Collection. Students were also awarded 2nd, 3rd and Honorable Mention Awards.

The “Purchase Prize Award” winners are; Digital Photo II- Olivia Capodilupo, Staying Home, Digital Photo I- Jane Karweick, Untitled, Painting I- Leslie Kobasic, Self-Portrait, Visual Structures- Jane Karweick, Personal Mandala.

Additional award winners include: Digital Photography I - 2nd place Jesse Schafer, Untitled, 3rd place Shelby Olsen, Empty, Honorable Mentions - Jamie Rivard, Hailey Gustafson, Oscar Johnson. Digital Photography II - 2nd place Christian Stapert, In the Mirror, 3rd place Nathan Tufnell, Light.
