College Alumni, Employees Showcase Creativity at Art on the Notre Dame College Circle

An alumna and adjunct instructor─showcasing her work along with several other faculty, staff and students in the first-ever College display─took top honors in the 2013 Art on the Notre Dame College Circle juried art show.

Sr. Megan Dull ’71 won first place for her ceramics highlighted in the College booth, which also featured original artwork ranging from mixed metal wall hangings to “quirky but cool” campus photographs crafted by about a dozen employees, students and alumni.

“It’s a wonderful way to be able to share your work and see what other people are doing,” said Amelia C. Joynes, an adjunct art instructor who presented multiple media pieces. “This event, this Notre Dame tent, allows us to show that we are a community of creating, not just individual artists.”

Artwork for sale in the College exhibit included items such as whimsical earrings created by Amy Kesegich, assistant professor of English and chair of the English and communications department;  College athletic jersey purses stitched by Jacqi Loewy, assistant professor of communication and theatre; and collage note cards from Louise Prochaska, professor of theology and women’s studies.

Among others, Mary Brigid, Falcon Café manager, offered batik pillows and Andrea Levine, graduate assistant for campus activities, provided pop tab bracelets. Bonnie James, student teacher supervisor, funded a separate booth for her handmade scarves.

In addition to Dull, alumni in the College booth included Tina Meeks ’11, who exhibited printmaking, line transfers and a sculpture.

“It’s such a good opportunity to work together and to expose your artwork to the public,” said Meeks, who also staffed the College booth.

While Dull, whose Dual Images gallery is part of the TerraVista Studios in Cleveland, took the top prize, Colleen Croniger from Lakewood, Ohio, won second place, for her Stones of Erie Designs jewelry. Yvonne R. Sanderson of South Euclid, Ohio, placed third for Focal Plane Photography aerial images and Gina Fletcher of Westlake, Ohio, and her Jewelry by Gina received the award for best looking booth. All winners received cash prizes.

Toni Fiderio ’72, and alumna and adjunct art instructor, was juror for the 2013 art show.
