Works by UL Student ArtistsFive students in the Department of Visual Arts participated in this year’s UL System Academic Summit, representing concentration areas in animation, ceramics, metalwork & jewelry, printmaking, and photography. This year’s conference was held online in a two-day event featuring a visual arts review of student work from each of the nine schools in the UL system, and a live presentation held on Friday, March 26th. For the first time this year, visual arts students were invited to present their work at the conference, which was attended by undergraduate and graduate researchers, as well as faculty advisors.

The conference commenced with opening remarks by UL System President and CEO Dr. Jim Henderson. Kaleigh Blanchard and Cris Soria presented in concurrent morning sessions, followed by Hollis Russell’s presentation in the early afternoon. During the Q&A period, a lively dialogue ensued with inquires to the art students regarding the meaning and techniques behind their work. Other points of discussion centered on the effects the pandemic had on student research and the importance of community via classes and faculty mentors. The following students represented the Department of Visual Arts:

  • Kaleigh Blanchard – Ceramics
  • Madison Hutson – Metalwork & Jewelry
  • Catherine Kramer – Printmaking
  • Hollis Russell – Computer Art & Animation
  • Cris Soria – Photography
