Women's Center

WMC Gallery

Since 2022, the WMC awards the Women's Center Exhibition Awards to student artists in the College of Fine Arts' BFA Juried Art Exhibition whose artwork reflects the WMC's mission. Each semester, the winner's artwork will be on display in our new gallery space at the Center (RUC 339) and will be featured here on our website. 
Stop by anytime during our office hours to admire our currently featured artist's work.

Spring 2024 Winner: Matdeline Phillips

This semester's winner is Matdeline Phillips! Her winning piece was created with silk screen print and quilted cotton, entitled "Circadian." Her exhibit can be viewed in the WMC gallery, RUC 339, Monday through Friday. 


Matdeline Phillips

"Matdeline Phillips is a senior at Tennessee Technological University working towards a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree with a concentration in Fibers. Her current work uses traditional, fiber techniques to produce work based on life experiences and her interactions with others. Circadian, the piece displayed in this exhibition, is based on fluctuating states of being awake, and asleep. Matdeline writes about this piece stating: “Dreams, nightmares, and in-between are a constant state of discomfort in my life. Vivid nightmares, and slips of time, cause me to spiral about what's real and what's formulated in these dream states. Each clock displays a time, or a number, each of which connects to a particular date or time associated with the events happening in my present life."
