Daphne Smallwood, an ME.D in Art Education student at Tyler School of Art, has been selected to be a part of two highly competitive Artist-in-Residence programs: the Imagenes y Palabras and the Warm Heart Art residencies. Imagenes y Palabras is a small cultural organization in Spain that offers workshops, artist stays and classes throughout the year. The Warm Heart Art residency is located in Arusha, Tanzania, and Daphne will exhibit artwork that she has created during her residency there with other international artists. Daphne believes these residency experiences will help to expand her art practice and introduce her to artists from all over the world, as well as positively influence her practice as an art educator.

Emerge 2014 attracted more than 320 entrants from artists in 32 countries and 35 universities. 42 of the artists were selected to win awards.
MFA Glass student Kate Clements received the Emerge 2014 Academic Award for her piece Untitled (Wall). It was her second time submitting work.
"While I was in undergrad at the Kansas City Art Institute I got into Emerge 2010 but wasn't an award winner," Clements said. "The push for me to apply this year came from Sharyn O'Mara and the glass department's artist in residence Dan Clayman, they were both excited and confident that the piece would do well in the show and that I should make time to apply even though it was at the end of the semester. I almost didn't apply!"
Winners were announced at the show's opening. Clements found out that she had won through a Facebook post.
