Margaret Morrison, associate professor and chair of the painting and drawing program in the Lamar Dodd School of Art, has been selected as a 2019 regional juror for the AXA Art Prize.
Formerly known as the XL Catlin Art Prize, this competition is open to undergraduate and graduate students in U.S. art programs.
The AXA Art Prize shines a spotlight on the reemergence of figurative art in the contemporary art world. Now in its second year in North America, the prize is founded on a 10-year legacy of a previous prize that was established in the United Kingdom and recognized young artists through a prestigious London exhibition and catalog publication. The contest provides a unique platform for new artistic talent and gives the next generation of figurative artists a forum in which to launch their careers.
