PORT ANGELES — “Blind Happiness” by Catherine Janiszewski won Best of Show in the annual Peninsula College Student Art Exhibition.

The 2020 Peninsula College Student Art Exhibition was presented online this year due to COVID-19. It can be viewed on the PUB Gallery of Art Facebook page.

“Viewing artworks in person can be a highly emotive and real experience,” said Michael Paul Miller, art professor.

“Though as we move ever increasingly into the digital realm, the experience of finding inspiration in compelling works of visual art through virtual means happens more often than not.”

Awards were selected by faculty from the Peninsula College Art and Multimedia Communications departments.

• President’s Merit Award — Casandra White, “I Am Not My Hair.”

• 1st Place in 2-D — Casandra White, “I Am Not My Hair.”

• 1st Place in 3-D — Emma Beeson, “Cerberus, Fluffy.”

• 1st Place in Photo/Digital Art — Kayla Blomberg, “Untitled.”

• 2nd Place in 2-D — Breanna Skye Beck, “Overdue Picnic.”

• 2nd Place in 3-D — Gavin Christian Truckenmiller, “Waiting for the Tide.”

• 2nd Place in Photo/ Digital Art — McKenzie Nelson, “Vulpine Denali.”

The following artists received honorable mention:

• Lisa C. Robinson, “Miasmatic Wilder-Wood.”

• Joshua Silliman, “Untitled.”

• Catherine Janiszewski, “Tranquil Surroundings.”

• Hana Sugiat, “Cherish.”

• Allison Hunt, “Artisan of Ware, the Arbitrator of Chaos.”

• Tomás Rodocker (Lucian Ward), “Guardian.”

“Viewing digital pictures of some forms of art has its limitations. However, hopefully we’ll find the old adage of their thousand words worth will still apply,” Miller said.

“Please join us online and lose yourself in the power of art.”
