For Immediate Release

The Art Department at the University of Hawai`i at Hilo received news this week regarding the achievements by its students.

A trio of senior art majors -- Margo Ray, Joe Kalima, and Stephanie Pitoy -- are presenting their work in printmaking in "The Next Generation," a traveling student national print exhibition sponsored by the Northwest Print Council based in Portland, Oregon.

The exhibition opened in October 2002 in Western Oregon University and is traveling to Oregon State University, Mt. Hood Community College, Eastern Oregon University, Southwestern Oregon Community College, Pacific Northwest College of Art, Chemeketa Community College, and the University of North Dakota through May 2003.

Ray, Kalima, and Pitoy are the second group of UH Hilo students to participate in the national student print exhibition sponsored by the Northwest Print Council.

Chris Churchill (B.A. in Art, 2000) was one of four UH Hilo students who participated in the 2000-01 national student print exhibition. He is currently in his final year of graduate studies at the Cranbrook Academy of Art in Michigan.

Churchill is one of the featured artists in the inaugural exhibition at the Hawai`i State Art Museum, "Enriched by Diversity: The Art of Hawai`i," which includes 360 works of art in a variety of media by 284 artists of Hawai`i.

Churchill's work received a purchase award from the Hawai`i State Foundation on Culture and the Arts during 1999-2000. He is one of several UH Hilo art alumni included in the State Art Collection.
