PNCA Faculty Member and Alumna Receive Prestigious Awards

June 13, 2010

Pacific Northwest College of Art congratulates Kurt Hollomon and Janice Packard ‘92, two of six recipients of the prestigious Oregon Art Educator Awards for the 2010-11 school year and sponsored by the Oregon Art Education Association.

PNCA Faculty member Kurt Hollomon was announced as the 2010-11 Oregon Art Educator of the Year. Kurt is an illustrator and former designer who has taught at PNCA since 2000. His son, Jake Hollomon, graduated from PNCA in 2008, and they recently took a trip to New York together and blogged about it on Untitled Magazine.

PNCA alumna Janice Packard teaches at Estacada High School and sits among the six award recipients as Secondary Art Educator of the Year. She received a BFA in Painting from the College in 1992 and was recently chosen to exhibit work in the 2010 Juried Art Exhibit sponsored by the Gresham Art Commission at Gresham City Hall, May 18-July 8.

They will be honored along with the four other award recipients at the OAEA Conference in October at the Portland Art Museum.
