Gallery East hosts student art exhibit

Print PageEmail PageShareGet Reprints

The USU-College of Eastern Utah Art Department is hosting the Seventh Annual High School Art Competition at Gallery East on the US-CEU campus. The competition is a venue for high-school-age students in Utah to create and exhibit art work that will be judged against their peers.

The exhibit is open through Feb.10,. An opening reception and awards ceremony will be held Jan. 21 from 7:00 to 9:00 PM. The public is welcome.

Gallery director Noel Carmack says that this year's entries are as remarkable as last year's entries. Creative works in the competition range from ceramics and jewelry to traditional two-dimensional work such as painting, drawing, and photography. "We are seeing some outstanding work every year. It is getting increasingly difficult to decide on award winners because of the strength of the work."

According to Carmack, the quality of the work may be due to the rising number of students from far reaches of the state who enter the show. "This is the second year we've afforded students the opportunity to enter their work electronically. This means the student can fill out an online entry form and attach images of their work. Since we've started doing this, we seen a wave of artwork submitted electronically. In some cases, we've seen entries from students who would not have entered work otherwise, because of the distance." Carmack says, as a result, the competition has seen an increase in entries from students attending schools as far away as Tooele, Logan, Ogden, and Saint George.

All artists of high school age (14-18 years old) are eligible to participate, including public high school students, home-schooled students and students attending private schools. Entrants are not required to be enrolled in an art class to participate.
