Bang Luu ’14 walked away with the first place prize at the 10th annual College Art Show for her laser engraving on plywood panel titled “Stardust,” above.

Bang Luu ’14, a visual arts studio major with a visual art history minor at Holy Cross, earned first place in the 10th annual College Art Show, a juried exhibit of the best art coming out of Worcester-area colleges and universities.

The winners were announced during an artists’ reception on Feb. 7 at the ArtsWorcester Aurora Gallery, 660 Main Street, in Worcester. The exhibit will be on display until March 15.

The annual student exhibition “is a rare opportunity to experience Worcester as a college town, and to see its wealth of new artistic talent,” according to ARTSWorcester. Works on paper, painting, photography, sculpture, and digital media are eligible for consideration by the juror. This year’s entries were reviewed by Nick Capasso, director of the Fitchburg Art Museum. The top artists receive cash prizes.

A resident of Lawrence, Mass., Luu won for her laser engraving on plywood panel titled “Stardust,” which measures at 23 inches long by 20 inches wide. It depicts that all humans are interconnected in one way or another, she says. She developed the piece as part of the Digital Art Studio I course, taught by Rachelle Beaudoin, lecturer in the visual arts department.

Luu hopes to work for an animation company following graduation. “I would like to integrate what I have learned at Holy Cross and continue working with the technological medium that I love,” she said.

The exhibit features the work of 11 other Holy Cross students: Carmen Alvarez ’14, Katie Candee ’14, Andrew Cavicchi ’14, Kathryn Droumbakis ’14, Meridith Foote ’15, Elisa Jimenez ’14, Leo Kennedy ’14, Mavinee LaCroix ’14, Madison Schneider ’15, Allison Thiel ’17 and Regina Viqueira ’14.
