Lynne Hundley
“Yesterday’s Gone”
Mixed media

Hundley’s painting represents a new beginning, as “Everything I’ve done over the last 30 years is over. I’m moving into being an artist full time.” A minister at Cottage Place United Methodist Church in Portsmouth, Hundley will graduate in May with an associate of applied arts in studio arts. Her inspiration for Yesterday’s Gone stems from a drive around town on trash day, noting the piles of discarded construction materials on the side of the road.

VAC Purchase Award, Joshua Solomon, Blue Note, glassVAC Purchase Award
Joshua Solomon
“Blue Note”

Solomon, who holds a bachelor’s from Bard College in studio arts, attends TCC to further his development as a glass artist. His award-winning blown glass represents a water droplet and a musical note, pieces in a multiple series he is developing simultaneously. “My work is as much about the fun of the process as the finished product,” he says.
