PHOTO STORY: Treat Gallery is pleased to present its inaugural show: “#NAILEDIT”, a juried group exhibition featuring work by artists working in administrative or technical positions in higher education. Often underrated, forgotten and left out, techs and administrative assistants can be the driving force behind a student’s success. While adjunct pools expand and tenure becomes extinct, technician jobs increase for overqualified MFA-holding candidates.
The jurors selected 10 artists whose work demonstrated great concept, precise craftsmanship and originality:
Jeremy Jones (3D Technician, Vanderbilt University)
Michael A. Collins (Fabrication Lab Coordinator, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign)
Gabriella Sturchio (Media Technician, Maine College of Art)
Kira Kikla (Photography Lab Manager, Towson University)
Michael Benevenia (Sculpture Technician, Maryland Institute of Art)
Page Burch, (Head Technician, Kennesaw State University)
Eric Cagley (Administrative Assistant, Ewing Gallery of Art and Architecture, University of Tennessee, Knoxville)
Alisha McFadzen, (Financial Aid Department, Wesleyan University)
Jen DePlour, (Sculpture Technician, Savannah College of Art and Design)
Sarah McFalls, Collections Manager, Ewing Gallery of Art and Architecture, University of Tennessee, Knoxville)
