“Her Brother’s Keeper: Rupture,” a mixed media piece by MANDEM (Florida State University art student Maize Arendsee) won Second Place at the Sixth Annual PINNACLE National Juried Art Competition at Florida A&M University’s Foster-Tanner Art Gallery.
Dr. Marilyn Proctor-Givins, the juror for PINNACLE 2014, shared the following thoughts about the selection process for this exhibit:
“What an amazing honor and difficult task I had in selecting works of art for the Pinnacle exhibition at the Foster-Tanner Fine Arts Gallery this year…. I was captivated by the artistic voices expressed in the works submitted for review. The body of work exhibits a broad spectrum of engaging subject matter skillfully arranged around a creative media palette that allows one’s eyes to repeatedly gaze and ponder the artist’s intent in their masterful balance of subject and technical style.”
“Her Brother’s Keeper: Rupture” is one of three mixed media works by MANDEM that were accepted to PINNACLE.

In addition, the Foster Tanner Fine Arts Gallery is host to a variety of exhibitions that range from faculty exhibitions to international showcases.
