Art Exhibit Opportunity Provided for High School Students

William Woods
University will host the second Emerging Talent High School Art Show at the
Mildred M. Cox Gallery Jan. 16-Feb. 1. The show is open to all high school
students.

Students may submit up
to four pieces of artwork for a total entry fee of $10. Artwork in all mediums
is welcome.
 
This competitive show
will be judged by professional artists, and cash prizes will be awarded,
including a $1,000 William Woods University scholarship for Best of Show.
 
“I think that any high
school student interested in pursuing art in any capacity should participate in
shows such as our Emerging Talent Art Show. The experience will build
confidence and provide insight that they may not gain otherwise,” said Jennifer
Sain, Mildred M. Cox gallery coordinator.
 
“This is a great
opportunity for young artists to gain real world experience submitting work in
a competitive format, not to mention the cash prizes and scholarship award.”
 
Artwork should be
submitted between 1 and 6 p.m. Jan. 7-9 at the Gladys Woods Kemper Center for
the Arts on the William Woods University campus.  All work must be wired for hanging or matted
for professional presentation. A copy of the entry form must be attached to
each piece.
 
Artwork may also be
mailed, but all submissions must reach William Woods by the entry deadline,
Jan. 9. Mail packages to William Woods University, Mildred M. Cox Gallery,
Attn: Jennifer Sain, One University Ave., Fulton, MO 65251. Return postage is
required.
 
All entries will be juried
Jan. 11, and a reception and awards presentation will be held from 5 to 6 p.m.
Feb. 1.  Artwork should be taken home
after the closing reception.
