Untitled by Mae Guttenfelder

Untitled by Mae Guttenfelder

St. Louis Park High School students Mae Guttenfelder and November Marshall received awards at the Metro West Conference Art Exhibition at Normandale Community College. Guttenfelder received the Award of Excellence for her untitled ceramic work, while Marshall received the Merit Award for his ink on paper piece titled More to life RT.

"It is rare to see utilitarian objects that are as narrative and engaging as Mae Guttenfelder's Untitled dishware. When viewing the piece, the images wrap around the form of the dish almost like a comic - and I was fascinated by the intentionality of the chopstick holders. These objects are almost too beautiful to eat out of, but they are important reminders of how art should be entwined with daily living." -Juror Louise Fisher

More to life RT by November Marshall

"I immediately felt a story behind the emotive portrait by November Marshall. Formally, this drawing successfully incorporates a variety of line techniques such as hatching, scribbling and stippling which I admire. Furthermore, the mark-making - in addition to the title - conveys a moment of anxiety and strife." -Juror Louise Fisher
