Sherratt Library to Exhibit Utah’s Top Student Artwork
October 18, 2010
The All-State Utah High School Art Exhibition, part of the Utah Arts Council’s Traveling Exhibition Program, is now open at SUU’s Gerald R. Sherratt Library and features the award-winning artwork by students participating in the 2010 All-State High School Show.
Sponsored each spring by the Springville Museum of Art, this statewide high school art competition provides a professional forum for students to display their best work. For many students, this contest provides a first taste of artistic competition and prepares them for the future competitions they may choose to enter. The exhibition also provides exposure for graduating students within the state, and past senior class artists have received scholarships awarded by the art schools of Utah colleges and universities following their participation in this program.
In addition to student awards, the Springville Museum of Art awards an outstanding arts educator from a Utah high school for their dedication to their students and the creation of art.
The All-State Utah High School Art Exhibition will be displayed on the third floor of the Sherratt Library until Nov. 2. The Sherratt Library is open Monday thru Thursday from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m., Friday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Saturday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Sunday from 2 p.m. to 10 p.m.
The All-State Utah High School Art Exhibition competition is open to 11th and 12th grade students from public and private schools throughout the state. Each student may submit up to two pieces of artwork into the competition, including drawing, opaque painting, transparent watercolor, sculpture, fiber, printmaking, photography, ceramics, commercial, mixed or jewelry. Additional information on the All-State High School Show is available through the Springville Museum of Art at 801.489.2727.
