Nine students from Lakewood High and West Shore Career-Tech's Media Art & Design program had their art selected to move on to the state-level judging in the Ohio Governor's Youth Art Exhibition regional competition held March 9. Artwork selected from among the regional award winners will hang in the Statehouse in Columbus for one month.
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.
The Ohio Governor's Youth Art Exhibition is open to all of Ohio's high schools, both public and private. Its purpose is to provide all budding young artists of the state with opportunities to advance their talent, whether that be through scholarships or simply experiencing the process of entering their work in a competition.
Our artists whose work will move on for further judging are:
Seth Marroquin- 2 pieces: Animation & Painting
Una Bryson- Ceramics
Lillian Horschke - Printmaking
Jane Kalinowski- Drawing
Brady Lauren- Printmaking
Kar Lay Dular- Painting
