From May 17 to June 1 the Sharon Arts Center will present the first of what will be an annual exhibit of artwork created by students in 9th through 12th grade in the state of New Hampshire. This exhibition will be juried, and winners will be announced at the opening reception Friday, May 17 from 5 to 7 pm.
“It is our hope that students who participate will strengthen their artistic development by experiencing the preparation, jurying, and submission processes,” said Sharon Arts Center Gallery Director Camellia Sousa.
Students interested in entering their work must send digital submissions by April 12 and will be notified by April 19 if they have been selected. Acceptible media include ceramics, drawing/pastel, digital art, glass, 2D mixed media, 3D mixed media, painting (oil and acrylic), photography, printmaking, and watercolor. Up to two submissions per student are allowed, one image per work. All artists may have their work for sale or not for sale. Submissions can be emailed to email@example.com with the subject line “High School Exhibition.”
According to the Sharon Art Center, entries will be judged on technical merit, aesthetic quality, and the creative approach to the artistic process. The Best in Show will receive a $500 prize, and 10 First Place winners from each media category will receive a $100 prize. The New Hampshire Institute of Art will award a $500 scholarship to a graduating senior.
