McClay earns art award

 Lydia McClay of Canal Winchester received the Caldy Award for her relief print titled "Seeps of Old" at the 2008 Juried Student Art Exhibition at Ashland University’s Coburn Art Gallery. A junior fine arts major at Ashland, McClay is a 2005 graduate of Canal Winchester High School. McClay said her inspiration for the piece came from a professor on campus. "I was inspired one day walking to class and seeing an older professor with many deep wrinkles in his skin. I think these marks tell us a lot about the kind of life a person has lived, and I wanted to create a piece that took these telling marks‚ to a more dynamic level," said McClay. After graduation McClay intends on getting a master’s degree in art therapy.
