About the award recipients:


Anthony Baab
 draws inspiration from ancient architecture and modern technology to construct exquisitely complex, imaginary structures using pencil and colored tape on paper or panels. “Like a blueprint that has been plotted over many times on the same surface, each drawing exposes a process of recalculations and erasures necessary to produce a final polished graphic,” he wrote in an artist statement. His drawings and paintings have been exhibited recently at Urban Culture Project’s Paragraph gallery and in other Kansas City venues such as Fahrenheit Gallery, the Kansas City Jewish Museum at Village Shalom, Shaw Hofsta and Associates, the Old Post Office and the Kansas City Artist Coalition.

Deanna Dikeman received a B.S. in biology and an M.S. in management from Purdue University and has worked as a freelance photographer since the mid-1980s. She has taught at the University of Missouri since 1995 and was a 1996 recipient of the Aaron Siskind Foundation Individual Photographer’s Fellowship. She has exhibited widely, from local galleries like the Society of Contemporary Photography in Kansas City, Mo., to an international group exhibition at Beida University in Beijing, China. She is represented by the Dolphin Gallery in Kansas City. Recent work includes the “Relative Moments” series, which explores her aging parents’ routines, and the “Wardrobe” series, which captures the story-telling capacities of thrift store clothing.


Justin Gainan
 creates large and small scale graphite or ink drawings and sculptural installations from wood, clay, cement, string or paper through a process of relational accumulation. “Constant scribbling, when collected, builds a field of activity,” he writes. “A single line and its existence according to the lines around it, determines the composition.” Gainan’s work has appeared in a solo exhibition at the Lynn Foundation in Kansas City and in group exhibitions at the H&R Block Artspace, the Dolphin Gallery and Yellow Warehouse in Corpus Christi, Texas, where he has been an inaugural Port Side Artist in Residence.


Elijah Gowin
 earned a B.A. in art history from Davidson College and an M.F.A. from the University of New Mexico. He is an assistant professor at the University of Missouri-Kansas City, where he directs digital studies. Exhibitions include solo shows at Colorado Photographic Arts Center in Denver, Photo Gallery International in Tokyo, Japan, Light Factory in Charlotte, N.C., and Houston Center for Photography in Houston. He is represented by the Robert Mann Gallery in New York and the Dolphin Gallery in Kansas City. Gowin’s most recent series of photographs, “Watering,” focuses on contemporary Christian baptisms, which survey a range of emotions including joy, serenity, passion, pain, insecurity and aggression.


Aaron Wrinkle’s
 artwork ranges from installations, paintings, drawings, sculptures, photographs, performances and hybrid forms. Wrinkle writes: “The work tends to critique weather, politics, gender and most commonly the processes of daily life. Things that trigger my work are brightly colored trash bags, road work, billboard advertisements and contemporary art magazines, including old ones. Most recently I’m interested in how I can address my aesthetic in art historical terms, including the contemporary through the attachment of meteorology.” Exhibitions include a solo exhibition at the Leedy-Voulkos Art Center and group exhibitions and installations at the Lynn Foundation in Chicago, UCP’s Bank gallery, Fahrenheit Gallery, the H&R Block Artspace and the Stray Show in Chicago.
