This exhibition features recent works by Kara Spoonhour, the 2002 Margaret Stonewall Wooldridge Hamblet award winner.  The Hamblet award winner is selected by a panel of outside jurors from an open invitational for graduating seniors held each spring.  The award, an $18,000 grant to be used for travel and study during the year following graduation, culminates in this exhibition. In this body of work, Spoonhour uses a variety of resources including historical photography, news articles, satellite imagery and propaganda posters to create bold and powerful images reflecting current world issues.
