For Immediate Release
DALLAS - Brian Hauser, art student at Brookhaven College, is the 2010 winner of the Dallas Art Dealers Association Edith Baker Scholarship. His work is part of the Edith Baker Scholarship exhibition at the Irving Arts Center, which features pieces from the students who were recommended for the scholarship.
Hauser received the award at the exhibition's Sept. 24 reception. The scholarship, which totals $4,000, also provides the winner an opportunity to intern with the DADA member gallery of his choice.
