Local grad student wins Best of Show at St. Louis exhibition

HAYS, KS -- Not only were two works by Hays graduate student Jayson Taylor accepted into Fiber Focus 2001, a juried regional art exhibition in St. Louis, but he also took home Best of Show honors.

Taylor entered "Waiting for Blue," a 6-foot-by-20-foot spread of five panels, and "Blue Journals," 7 feet by 27 feet in seven panels.

The exhibition selected 66 fiber media artworks by 61 artists from eight Midwest states.

Taylor was one of only a few to have more than one work accepted. Fiber Focus will be on display at the Art St. Louis Gallery until Aug. 10.
