The Delaware Contemporary is pleased to announce the Lynn Herrick Sharp Award Exhibition in a joint venture with the University of Delaware. This exhibition features the Lynn Herrick Sharp Award recipient and two honorable mentions granted to art majors in the final stages of pursuing a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree.
Lynn Herrick Sharp is a long-time supporter of The Delaware Contemporary, having served as Secretary of the Board of Directors from 2002 to 2008. She is recognized as an Emeritus Board Member for her contributions to The Delaware Contemporary and for championing contemporary art in the region.
In September 2009, she established the Lynn Herrick Sharp Award in support of the Fine Arts program at the University of Delaware's Department of Art and Design to help the recipient produce and document their work. The award is presented to an art major working in photography, sculpture, printmaking or painting. During the student's junior year, portfolios are submitted to the fine art faculty for award consideration. The recipient for the 2017-18 Lynn Herrick Sharp Award is senior Fine Art student Ana Jackson Chaves and the honorable mention recipients are Madison Bacon and Andrew Walcot Gayda. These artists will be exhibiting their most recent body of work at The Delaware Contemporary in conjunction with the University of Delaware Alumni Invitational exhibition.
