Circling Round Featured Artist: Ashley Carroll

Ashley Carroll has been selected as a featured artist in the Miami University Art Museum 2020 Student Response Exhibition! Carroll is an art studio graduate student at Miami. She is from Columbus, Ohio.

Her featured artwork, Underneath It All, We Are The Same, was inspired by identity politics. For fun, she likes to make art and listen to music. She would love to be a famous artist in her dream career. 

This year’s SRE topic was Circling ‘Round, where students thought about what a circle meant to them and how they might interpret it in art. Nearly 100 submissions were received. 32 works by 58 students were chosen to be featured in the Spring 2020 exhibition. As a juried exhibition, all works were selected through a formal process by a committee.

The exhibition will open Tuesday, January 28 and will remain through alumni weekend, closing on June 13. Voting will be open until April 11, 2020. There will be an artist celebration and award ceremony held on April 14, 2020, from 6 to 8 PM where three works will be awarded prizes totaling over $800. The awards are sponsored by the Art Museum Membership Association.

Come see Ashley Carroll’s artwork along with the rest of the student response exhibition, Circling ‘Round, at the Miami University Art Museum!
