Art Professor Receives 2017 Jack Fellowship

Dave, L.Dave Lewellyn, assistant professor of visual arts, received the 2017 Jack Fellowship from the BSC Foundation. Lewellyn has an associate degree from BSC, and a Bachelor of Arts from NDSU. He studied abroad in Italy with Montserrat College of Art, and is currently completing a Master of Art degree from the University of Montana, Missoula.

Lewellyn has exhibited his work in galleries all over North Dakota. He was chosen to be a part of the Western Design Conference 2008-2010 in Jackson Hole, Wyo., as a Juried Artist Exhibitor and was featured in the “Western Design Conference” publication. Lewellyn frequently works with natural elements that reflect his surroundings. This can be seen in the two wall sculptures he was chosen to create and install in the Bavendick Stateroom in the National Energy Center of Excellence at Bismarck State College in 2017.

The $25,000 Jack Fellowship helps BSC employees further their education, conduct research or pursue other professional development. The late Tom and Peg Jack, lead contributors to BSC’s Jack Science Center, endowed the Jack Fellowship in 1999. A committee appointed by the BSC Foundation selects the recipients.
