2021 Juried Student Exhibition

EXHIbIT DATES: February 22 – March 19, 2021

Zoom event TBA
JUROR: Alisa Sikelianos-Carter, Artist

Each year, Skidmore College art students (both majors and non-majors) submit works in a range of materials, including prints, photographs, sculpture, graphic design, painting, drawing, animation, fibers, jewelry, and ceramics. From an average of 250 submissions, a juror unaffiliated with the Skidmore Art Department selects 70 – 80 works for inclusion in the exhibition. The Juried Student Exhibition is a perennial favorite, showcasing works in all media and celebrating the imagination and skill of Skidmore College art students. 

Our juror this year is Alisa Sikelianos-Carter, a mixed-media visual artist living and working in upstate New York. Inspired by traditionally Black hairstyles, Sikelianos-Carter uses web and catalogue sourced images to construct new archetypes. Her opulent, large-scale figural works celebrate and pay homage to Black ancestral majesty, power and aesthetics.

Sikelianos-Carter earned her BA and MA from SUNY Albany in Painting and Drawing. She has been awarded numerous residencies, including The Millay Colony for the Arts, Vermont Studio Center, The Wassaic Project, and Yaddo. She is currently a NXTHVN studio fellow in New Haven, CT. Her recent exhibitions include group shows at the Tang Teaching Museum, Saratoga Springs, NY; Pelham Art Center, Pelham, NY; Esther Massry Gallery at the College of Saint Rose, Albany, NY; and the Bronx Art Space, Bronx, NY.
