The results are in from Indigo Perfumery's Collegiate Art Competition Exploring the Senses: Art from Perfume. As we first reported, entrants had each chosen one fragrance from over 110 in the store to interpret and translate olfactory art into fine art. The winners were chosen for the works that best exemplified the intangible yet powerful beauty of fragrance. Judge Rebecca Cross, a nationally known textile artist who teaches at Kent State University, joined Ann Onusko, Indigo Perfumery's owner in bestowing the prizes before the many guest who attended.
The first prize ($500) was a tie:
Abbey Blake, 22, Cleveland Institute of Art, Digital print on Hahnemuhle Paper.
Fragrance inspiration: Vertine by Friedemodin
Valerie Perczak, 23, Oberlin College, Video.
Fragrance: Ciel d'Opale by Ann Gerard
2nd Place ($300):
Erin Miller, 25, Kent State University, tapestry.
Fragrance: Skin Graft by Phoenicia Perfumes
3rd Place ($100):
Tanzanight, 33, Cleveland Institute of Art, oil on canvas.
Fragrance: Thirty Three by Ex Idolo
The free exhibit will continue at Indigo Perfumery until June 14th, with all finalists’ works on display and for sale Tuesdays through Saturdays, 11am – 5:30pm.
