High school artists featured in juried exhibition
A very special congratulations to two high school artists, Paige Matthews and Kellie Graham! Their printmaking artwork has been selected for the juried 2017 Central Region Ohio Governor's Youth Art Exhibition and will be judged against other artwork across the state.
From the 11,500 regional entries from the 15 regions, approximately 2,500 are selected to enter the state judging. State jurors then select 300 for the actual exhibition, with 25 of the 300 chosen to receive the Governor's Award of Excellence. Scholarships are offered to seniors by over 30 universities and colleges of art.
“This is very exciting news on the art front,” said Sharon Iseringhausen, visual arts teacher, Gahanna Lincoln High School.
The Ohio Governor's Youth Art Exhibition, now in its forty-seventh year, is dedicated to the educational and artistic advancement of our talented young people in the state of Ohio. The exhibition is open to all of Ohio's 1,112 high schools, both public and private, chartered by the State of Ohio Department of Education.
