LISBON FALLS — The International Sculpture Center named Kaitlyn Hunter of Lisbon Falls as a recipient of the Outstanding Student Achievement in Contemporary Sculpture Award for 2014.

Currently a second-year Master of Fine Arts graduate student at West Virginia University, Hunter was nominated for the prestigious award by Assistant Professor Dylan Collins and Associate Professor Jason Lee of the WVU School of Art & Design. A jury of art professionals chose 22 pieces from a field of 904 submitted works of art nominated from colleges and universities from several countries.

Kaitlyn’s piece is titled “Separation Anxiety.”

The 22 selected works of art will be on display at the Grounds For Sculpture Fall/Winter Exhibition in Hamilton, N.J., from October 2014 to March 2015. The chosen pieces will be featured in the October issue of Sculpture Magazine, as well as on the ISC website at www.sculpture.org. Later, the artwork will be showcased in a traveling art exhibit in various cities throughout the U.S.

Hunter graduated from Lisbon High School, where she received art foundations instruction from educators Elaine Cyr and Pam Ouellette. She received a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Southern Maine.

Kaitlyn said, “I feel very strongly about the transformative qualities of art and how it can be used to build community. My work has been enhanced by those that have shared that community.”
