UT Tyler Art Student’s Work Earns Best in Show Honors at Exhibition
A studio fine arts major at The University of Texas at Tyler received Best in Show honors for his artwork submitted in a recent state exhibition, James Pace, professor of art, announced.
John Bradley of Rockwall, a UT Tyler junior, participated in this year’s Rockport Center for the Arts on Aransas Bay exhibition. He submitted three works of art, including an artist statement for each.
“This was a huge surprise for me,” said Bradley. “I was happy to get into the show, but the Best of Show award was the kicker.”
Bradley, who plans to graduate in December 2009, is a member of the UT Tyler Art Club and Web Historical Society. Upon graduation, he hopes to attend graduate school.
