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.
This fall we celebrated the official opening of our new gallery space in the WMC and our first winner, Anna Grayson. Check out some of the pictures from our gallery opening event below.

Fall 2022 Winner: Anna Grayson
The Winning Piece
Anna Grayson is the first winner of the Women's Center Exhibition Awards with their metal artwork "See no, Hear no, Speak no" that will be one of the pieces featured in the WMC's gallery space during the fall semester. This metals piece uses layered materials to create a sensation of depth, as the shadowed figures struggle to emerge distinctly from the chaotic background, crowded with injunctions to see no, hear no, speak no. They incline toward the central figure, joining in a trio that almost seems to look back at the viewer through the haze surrounding their senses.
Anna Grayson is a metals artist from Gallatin, TN. They are set to graduate from the School of Art, Craft, and Design in December of 2022. Anna has spent their time studying at the Appalachian Center for Craft and creating work in a multitude of mediums. You can find Anna and their work on social media at @anna.grayson.art on Instagram and Facebook, or on their website.
