Cameron University students taking Beginning Sculpture recently got to experience a juried exhibition, which professional artists routinely enter their works into, due to the hosting of an adjudicated competition.

The competition was put together by Department of Arts, Music and Theatre Arts adjunct faculty member Glen Henry.

The winner of the competition was a work by Lanetta Davis, called “Emancipation.” Benson Warren, a professor emeritus at Cameron, was the competition’s adjudicator.

Davis, who is majoring in art, is a sophomore. “Emancipation” was created using atectonic sculptural work in wood media, with two hands reaching for each other and encompasses freedom from racism, bigotry, self-doubt and fear of failing as well as anything else that enslaves a person’s spirit.

Davis has said that her plans include converting her wooden maquette piece to one of welded steel.
