Five University of Guelph students have been awarded $160 each and given a three month spot in the Bullring, an on-campus coffee shop, for being selected for the Art in the Bullring initiative. Chosen from amongst thirty, two-dimensional works submitted, the student artists were selected by a panel of two students, two studio art professors and one administrator.

"This is the second year of Art in the Bullring, and turn-out has been very impressive," stated Jenn Watt, Central Student Association's academic commissioner. "This project has given us a chance to acknowledge the amazing skill present in this sector of the arts - a part of the University that is often overlooked."

This semester's winners are Claire Grady-Smith, Constance MacOnaghie, Lisa Westerveld, Erica Mawson and Claire Beauchamp. In January, the committee will reconvene to select five new student artists for the winter semester.

"This is an excellent opportunity for the university to give back to the students who work so hard, and pay so much to acquire their degrees," said J-me Allen the CSA communications commissioner. "I would like to encourage everyone to go and check out the selected works and find out what the art program is all about."

The Central Student Association is the undergraduate student voice at the University of Guelph. It represents over 17,000 students and provides advocacy, campaigns, programs and support for students throughout the year.
