Domino Masters, a tempera painting by Sofia Albee (A.A.S. Graphic Design/Illustration ’17), has been accepted into the 2017 Society of Illustrators Student Scholarship Competition and is being exhibited at the Society’s Museum of American Illustration in New York City this spring.
More than 300 works are chosen for the special exhibition out of the more than 8,700 entries submitted by college-level students nationwide each year. From those selected, scholarship awards are given to about 25 students for the most outstanding works. Works are selected for exhibition and awards by a jury of professional peers, including illustrators and art directors. Exhibited artworks are also included in a full-color catalog.
The Society of American Illustrators is the oldest nonprofit organization dedicated to the art of illustration in America. The Student Scholarship Competition, which was first held in 1981, has honored such artists as Pratt alumnus Kadir Nelson (B.F.A. Communications Design ’96), James Bennett, Gwenda Kaczor, Dan Dos Santos, James Jean, and more.
Albee created the work in Light, Color, and Design I, a course taught by Associate Degree Department Visiting Instructor Jamie Powell.
The exhibition opened on May 9 and is on view through June 3. An awards ceremony and opening reception were held on May 12. Read more about the Student Scholarship Competition and Exhibition.
