Joyce Elaine Grant Juried Photography Exhibition 2014
About the Exhibition
Established in 2001 and organized by the graduate photography students at Texas Woman’s University and the Photographic Artist’s Coalition (a student-run
photography organization), the annual Joyce Elaine Grant Photography Exhibition provides a national venue for the exhibition of artistic expression as seen
through the eye of the camera. Photographers from throughout the United States are invited to submit entries for the exhibition. The exhibition will be on
view to the public at the Texas Woman’s University Fine Arts Gallery February 20 through March 19, 2014.
The exhibition and endowment was established by Christine Shank and a small group of graduate students and named in memory of the mother of Professor
Susan kae Grant. Exhibition proceeds fund the Joyce Elaine Grant Photography Exhibition Endowment which supports photography scholarships for future
graduate students in the Department of Visual Arts.
Texas Woman’s University is a comprehensive public university, primarily for women, offering baccalaureate, masters and doctoral degree programs and is
the largest university for women in the United States. The University’s photography department has a legacy of excellence by empowering students to take
risks, establish a broad vision of the field and develop a personal voice and working methodology.
