Two FHSU graduate students accepted into international art competition

Two graduate students from Fort Hays State University, Lauren Baird, Omaha (68135), and Josh Novak, Omaha (68137), were accepted into this year's America's ClayFest III, a prestigious international ceramic competition and exhibition.

The jurors reviewed more than 557 ceramic entries and selected 80. Entries came from all over the world, including British Columbia, Ontario, Singapore, the Netherlands, Mexico, Ireland and England.

Baird's "It's Not All Black and White" and Novak's "Time-Consciousness" were accepted. Both pieces morph the human head into abstract art and are viewable on America's ClayFest website,, under "gallery" and "2015 open division."

The art exhibition will take place April 17 through May 30 at Blue Line Arts in Rossville, Calif.
