Kelsey Roebuck ’14 looking for a students who may be interested in drawing black and white illustrations for Reflections, the admissions magazine written by current students for prospective students.
The work needs to be fairly simple with dark enough lines to be copied. (Think newspaper cartoons except with your own personal flair). If you are interested, I would send you an article that needs an accompanying illustration. Your submission would be due a week later either in my mailbox  or under my door [Read 5223]. You would be paid for your submission.
Also, I am always looking for illustrators so if your work is good and fits the overall image of the magazine well, I would be interested in soliciting your illustrations for all future editions.
Please e-mail me at [roebuckk] or [reflections] if you would like to submit an illustration!
The studio faculty are extending the deadline to the 9th Semester Fellowship to Friday, March 8th at 5:00pm. Please email [renoch] with the following materials:
The Department of Art offers an opportunity for continued independent study by a
studio art major in the semester immediately following graduation. This fellowship
provides financial support for a semester of personal research to develop a portfolio in
preparation for graduate or professional work. The Fellowship in Studio Art provides
benefits, and with these benefits come obligations to the department.
Benefits: A stipend is awarded in three equal payments in October, November
and December of the fellowship semester. An additional budget stipend is provided to
offset the cost of materials. All equipment and tools normally furnished for student use
are at the disposal of the Fellow.
Obligation and Duties: The Fellow is expected to furnish his/her materials
beyond the stipend for supplies. The Fellow will also serve the department by
assisting with the installation of student shows, helping faculty with course related
tasks, monitoring the studio in which he/she is working, demonstrating work in
progress when called upon, and presenting his/her work in a formal exhibition at the
conclusion of the semester.
Application Procedure: To apply for the Fellowship in Studio Art, interested
senior studio majors will submit the following THREE documents via email to Chris

Check out the newest page on our website: the artist roster! Here local artists can submit their contact info so that they can be found by fellow artists and those wanting their services. If you know an artist who would like to be included, please have them fill out the form. We’re still figuring out the kinks, so please let us know if you have any recommendations.
ALSO ONLINE is the Creative Communities project, spearheaded by our apprentice Mary Rellergert. Here you can nominate anyone in the community whose creativity deserves recognition. I would argue that it’s hard to find someone who DOESN’T qualify for this recognition in some way. All the same, please submit nominations for this project, or pass the work on to others.
