Alumnus Recipient of the 2nd Annual MANIFEST PRIZE

Brett Eberhardt, a 2002 graduate of the School of Art and Design, has received the MANIFEST AWARD, sponsored by the Creative Research Gallery and Drawing Center in Cincinnati, Ohio. Mr. Eberhardt’s oil painting, titled “Red Plate”, was selected from 252 entries submitted by artists from across the country. Ten jurors review the entries until ONE from among hundreds is selected for exhibition in the Parallel Space Gallery , where it is the only work on display. The Manifest Prize has become an annual offering, which includes a cash award, and is featured in the gallery catalogue.

Eberhardt received his MFA from Syracuse University and is currently an Associate Professor of Painting at Western Illinois University. His work is exhibited nationally and he is represented by Packer Schopf Gallery in Chicago, Illinois.
