3rd Place           Richard Gullet  

Richard impressed us with his black and white ink drawings. Each intricate piece takes 4-6 weeks to complete with meticulous planning. As the ink is being applied over his original pencil drawing, the negative space often activates his imagination altering his original vision.  Frequenting animals and Greek mythology for inspiration, he manages to make one of a kind work each time. 

2nd Place           Flannery Murnen Through the use of traditional film cameras, Flannery's work is at the mercy of the moment. Pairing her love of history and talent in photography, she captures images for posterity. One photo captures a quick glimpse of the crowd on the Woman's march on Washington, while another documents a woman in Cuba carrying clean water, a basic amenity often taken for granted in other countries.
