GRU-UGA Student Scientific & Medical Illustration Exhibition

L-R: Megan Llewellyn, Elizabeth Nixon-Shapiro and Amy D’Camp.

The Greenblatt Library is pleased to be hosting the annual GRU-UGA Student Scientific & Medical Illustration Exhibition.

This annual exhibit begins as a juried exhibition at the Lamar Dodd School of Art on the University of Georgia campus in Athens before it is displayed at the Greenblatt Library. More than fifty masterful pieces of scientific and medical illustration comprise the exhibit. The scientific artwork documents the natural world around us, while the medical artwork enlightens us about the world of medical science and the inner-workings of the human body. The illustrations were created by students in the BFA scientific illustration program at the University of Georgia (UGA) and in the medical illustration graduate program here at Georgia Regents University (GRU).

At the Awards Ceremony in Athens on Wednesday, March 26, three GRU students received special honors:

  • Elizabeth Nixon-Shapiro, Class of 2014, received the prestigious William J. Stenstrom Award of Excellence for “Cardiac Ablation of the Mitral Valve.” The purpose of this illustration is to depict the ablation of aberrant electrophysiological signals in the heart from a novel and dramatic point of view in order to increase reader interest in a journal.
  • Amy D’Camp, Class of 2014, received an Award of Merit for “Robot-Assisted Laparoscopic Prostatectomy.” The purpose of this illustration is to instruct surgical residents about the procedure, including nerve-sparing techniques to prevent incontinence.
  • Megan Llewellyn, Class of 2015, received an Award of Merit for “Bullae Emphysema.” The purpose of this illustration is to document a specific pathological condition.

The entire exhibition is displayed on both floors of the Greenblatt Library and will be available for viewing until the end of May. The exhibition is open to the public and is free of charge.
