Twenty-seventeen marks the 50th anniversary of the Art of the State exhibition, which recognizes and features the great artists of Pennsylvania. This year, works categorized in painting, photography, sculpture, and craft on paper were given awards and the winners were chosen from over 2,200 submissions.
Marywood’s own Assistant Professor of Art and Area Coordinator of 3-D Studies, Nikki Moser, was recognized for her sculpture, “Springville Fracking Well and Pond.” Her work won second prize in the sculpture division of the 2017 Art of the State Awards. Nikki also co-founded Keystone Iron Works, an Iron Casting program for at-risk high school students, which has been awarded two National Endowment for the Arts awards. She regularly exhibits her work nationally and has sculptures in many private, and public collections.
