Nicole Petrescu, gallery coordinator, and the William Woods art committee curate the art show.
“The Emerging Talent High School Art Show is a great way for William Woods to get to know artistic high school students, and for those students to get to know William Woods, as well,” said Petrescu.
First, second and third place will be awarded. A Best of Show also will be chosen. The student who creates the Best of Show piece will be awarded an honorary $1,000 scholarship toward art studies at William Woods.
“I am very excited about the opening,” Petrescu said. “I can’t wait to meet the students and award the scholarship.”
