For the fourth year in a row, the PBC will present the exhibtion digitally. In response to changes in the timing of the determination of the host sites for the basketball tournament, the Art Exhibition has become a 'virtual' exhibition. Accordingly, each institution in the Peach Belt Conference was invited to submit digital images of 2 or 3 dimensional artwork completed by their students and faculty.
In addition, all submitted images of artworks will be shown via a slideshow presentation at the sites of the 2018 Peach Belt Conference Basketball Tournament Championship weekend.
The winners of this year's PBC Art Exhibtion are:
First Place – "Diversity" by Jonathan Stevens, Clayton State. Digital collage inkjet print
Second Place – "Skull Face" by Rashad Williams, Lander. Photography
Third Place – "Desolate/The Abandoned" by Angel Crespo, UNC Pembroke. Bone, epoxy, wood, acrylic paint
