Jeremy Horseman, BFA Class of 2013, has won the 2010 Frank C. Wright, Jr. Scholarship Award from the American Artists’ Fund in New York. The award is named in honor of Frank C. Wright, Jr., a former president and benefactor of The American Artists’ Professional League, Inc., an affiliate of The American Artists’ Fund.
Mr. Wright was an inventor and prolific painter. His work, primarily portraits and seascapes, hangs in the Smithsonian Institution, in embassies around the world, and in various collections.
The Frank C. Wright, Jr. Scholarship is given for artwork that demonstrates the student’s competence in and understanding of the fundamentals of drawing and painting and/or three-dimensional design in a representational manner.
Horseman’s award-winning artwork, Ghost of Byelorussia, pictured above, will be exhibited at the 82nd Grand National Exhibition at the Salmagundi Club galleries in New York City. That exhibition opens with an awards ceremony and reception on November 7, 2010.
