Three Artists Honored at Agnes Scott’s Dalton Gallery
Kristin Skees, Amanda Dumas-Hernandez, and Kathryn Clark have been selected as the standouts in “Material Witness,” the juried exhibition co-organized by Dalton Gallery of Agnes Scott College and the Women’s Caucus for Art of Georgia (WCAGA).
Skees takes top honors, a $750 prize. The Virginia-based artist makes photos of couples or individuals wearing knitted koozies, a humorous expression of a serious matter: the claustrophobia of relationships. A $500 award goes to Dumas-Hernandez, who teaches at the Savannah College of Art and Design, for her glitter-covered vacuum cleaner and wall installation of sparkly shaving mirrors. San Francisco-based Clark receives $250 for her textile pieces that resemble small quilts but are actually maps of foreclosed homes in Riverside and Albuquerque.
The prizes are underwritten, respectively, by the Decatur Arts Alliance, Barbara and Mike Rehg, and WCAGA. The show was juried by dealer Marcia Wood (whose exhibition of Skees’ work closed Nov. 16) and artists Lisa Alembik and Lynn Marshall-Linnemeier.
