Art professor works to be published in international book

 Hereford
"Two-Headed Hereford (Alva, Okla.)"

 Sparrow
"I, Said the Sparrow"

Two art pieces created by Brandice Guerra, MFA, assistant professor of art at Northwestern Oklahoma State University, will be published in a book called the International Painting Annual 3 this summer.

“I will have two paintings in it - ‘I, Said the Sparrow’ and ‘Two-Headed Hereford (Alva, Okla.),’” Guerra said.

Guerra explained that the publication puts out a call for artists to submit work to the jury for consideration.

“The publication is juried, meaning that many artists will submit work,” Guerra said. “The works are judged and final selections for publication are made. My works were selected for publication.”

The book, printed by the Manifest Press, is an international exhibition of contemporary paintings. The book will contain 116 works by 82 artists from 26 states and eight countries including Belgium, Canada, England, France, Germany, Ireland, Poland and the United States.

Eleven professional and academic advisors qualified in the fields of art, design, criticism and art history juried the third International Painting Annual. The process of selection was by anonymous blind jury, with each jury member assigning a quality rating for artistic merit to each work submitted. The entries receiving the highest average combined score are included in this publication.
