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.
For more information about submissions, contact Sain at firstname.lastname@example.org or (573) 592-4245.
