Art sought from area students
The Cooperstown Art Association is seeking artwork from Otsego County high school students for “An Artistic Discovery,” a Congressional High School Art Competition planned for March 8 through 29.
Six students will be awarded ribbons, and a digital image of their artwork will then be submitted to Congressman Chris Gibson’s office for the next phase of competition. From there, one student’s work will be selected for display in the U.S. Capitol alongside artwork from other students across the U.S.
The categories open for competition are painting, drawing, collage, printmaking, mixed media, computer generated artwork and photography. The competition aspect is open only to two-dimensional artwork, but the local show will also feature three-dimensional pieces. No more than two pieces of art per student are requested. Artwork should be delivered between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. March 2.
A list of rules has been sent to the art departments and guidance departments of area schools. More information is available from 547-9777 for more information.
