USU Eastern's 9th Annual Statewide Art Competition is currently on display at Gallery East. The exhibit runs until February 7.

More than two hundred fifty entries were received from all over Utah. In addition to entries from Carbon and Emery high schools, many paintings, drawings, watercolors, ceramics, and photographs were submitted from northern and southern Utah.

Participating high schools include Logan, Ben Lomond, Weber, Taylorsville, Copper Hills, Pleasant Grove, Juab, and Wayne high schools. "It's really incredible to see how much creative talent is being fostered in this state," says gallery director Noel Carmack. "Every year, I am impressed by the depth of skill these young students have."

This year, USU Eastern staff members Megan Woods (BA, Art History, Colorado State Univ.) and Lyndsay Reid (BFA, Illustration, Southern Utah Univ.), were invited to assist in jurying/judging the competition.

All high school age (14-18 years old) students were eligible to participate, including public high school students, home-schooled students and students attending private schools. "This was, perhaps, the largest number of submissions I've yet seen," Carmack said. "I hope our visitors take the opportunity to see how talented these young people are."

A closing reception and awards ceremony will be held on Friday, February 8, from 7:00 to 9:00 PM. Participating students and parents are invited to attend. The public is welcome.
