College Scholarships and High School Visual Arts Awards
Student Scholarship Show
April 30 – May 24
Reception and Award Ceremony, May 5
Once again Allied Arts is proud to present our annual Student Scholarship Show. Each year, as part of our mission, Allied Arts awards two scholarships to college art students and give awards of achievement to graduating seniors from area high schools.
The Master of Fine Arts scholarship is available to a fine arts graduate student in residence at a university in Washington, Oregon, or Idaho. This year the scholarship winner is Mami Takahashi. She currently attends Portland State. Ms. Takahashi involves multiple levels of written communication through her drawings and photography. Her work has been exhibited in shows in Japan, Mexico and several states in the US.
This year’s CBC Scholarship recipient is Collin Horner. He is currently working on his AA Degree at CBC and will be graduating from Richland High School this May. After his graduation from CBC he plans on transferring to a four year university to major in Art. He has worked mostly in pen and ink but is branching out with paintings in acrylic and oils.
One $250 Memorial Award and $500 in additional awards will be given to students graduating during 2013 from a Tri-city area high school. In addition, judges will award a “Judges Choice” certificate for one piece from each remaining portfolio. These awards will be presented at the discretion of the judges and in recognition of the student’s accomplishments in the visual arts during his/her school years.
We invite you to show your support of these young artists by visiting the Parkside Gallery this month and by attending the reception in their honor on May 5th at 1 pm. Your continued monetary support of the Gallery allows us to assist developing student artists with these awards. Thank you for your support.
