The Council for the Arts in Jacksonville, NC, Offers Annual Student Competition

The Council for the Arts in Jacksonville, NC, will present the 34th Annual Student Art Competition, featuring works by students, grades 6 through 12, on view from Mar. 4 - 23, 2012. An awards reception will take place on Mar. 4, from 2-3pm. The reception will be hosted by the Onslow Art Society.

This is the only county-wide art contest available to all middle and high school students in our county. Art departments of every school: public, private and base are invited to select and enter eight pieces of student work; home schooled students are each invited to enter one piece.

The show will be judged by Karen Baggott, photographer and teacher from Morehead City, NC.

This annual show is noted for its originality, colorfulness and innovation- an eye into the soul of a young artist. For thirty three years we have been impressed by the creative and unique talents of the entries. Many of the students have their work selected each year, so we are able to follow their development and, often, our young artists continue their studies through college and go on to successful careers in art. How do we know? They stop in to thank us for providing the early recognition that encouraged them to pursue their dream.

Last years winner was Mollie Pittman from KCE Art School.

This show received support from the North Carolina Arts Council, a division of the Department of Cultural Resources.
