The Betty Foy Sanders Department of Art (BFSDoArt) at Georgia Southern University recently presented awards to art students as part of “Fabricated: A Wearable Art Exhibition.” The juried, pop-up show featured wearable artworks made by undergraduate and graduate students taking 3D studio art courses.

Students created their pieces from a variety of materials and their artwork ranged from jewelry, hats and masks to wearable sculptures. Some of the artists wore their own work while other artists used models to share their work.

Of the more than 65 artworks submitted by students from the Statesboro and Savannah campuses to the exhibition, 44 were accepted into the show.

“I’m so proud of the works our students presented, the quality and creativity,” said Christina Lemon, a professor of jewelry and small metals.

Caitlin Ceccotti, a first-year studio art major, was awarded first place for her mixed media wearable sculpture “Internal Conflict.” Breannan Gamez, a junior 2D studios major, received second place for her work “Wood and Metal Necklace.” Eva Wilcher, a sophomore art education major, earned third place with her fabric piece titled “Handsy.”
