A BFA Closing Reception
"a show that addresses how I understand, interpret, and appropriate Black Culture. It taps into the sublime or uncanny to represent beings or objects within Black Culture. Additionally it utilizes sarcasm and satire to address how I view cultural representation.
It is also a very personal show, it is a revealing of all my personal jokes. It consists of things, ideas, habits that I have found and now making my own."

UF Student Work Chosen for ArtSpace Lima’s Annual Juried Photography Exhibition
Findlay, Ohio - Work by 11 students from The University of Findlay was accepted into Art Space Lima’s annual juried photography exhibition, which was on display from Jan. 4 – Feb. 16. Sarina Rouholfada, a sophomore at Findlay High School who also is a post-secondary student at UF, earned Best of Show.
The students entered the photography exhibition during a fall semester digital photography class instructed by Spencer Cunningham, adjunct faculty member. Cunningham requires his students to enter two exhibitions.
Students generally chose photos taken for class assignments or others taken throughout the semester to submit into exhibitions. The class discusses which images should be entered into a show, but it is each student’s final decision.
“Art is made to be experienced, and public exhibitions are one good way to see the highest quality expressions of one’s work,” said Cunningham. “It also gives students real-world experience and opportunities to see how others react to their work.”
This is the second year that a student under instruction of Cunningham has won Best of Show. Students with photography in the ArtSpace Lima’s annual juried photography exhibition were:
Sarina Rouholfada – Best of Show
Tim Lefferty – First place, portrait
Sierra Heaton – Honorable mention, portrait
Joy Salzwedel – Honorable mention, portrait
Caitlin Stahl – Honorable mention, portrait
