Two hundred fifty-two works of art, all created by high school artists, have been entered into the 2004 Rural High School Fine Art Competition held at the Braithwaite Fine Arts Gallery of Southern Utah University. Hosted by the University’s College of Performing and Visual Arts, the annual competition received entries this year from 15 rural high schools across the state.
An exhibition of the students work will run from December 2-17, and January 3-14, 2005. A reception and awards presentation will be held at the Braithwaite Fine Arts Gallery, on December 2, from 7 to 9 pm. Both events are open to the public without charge.
Entries in the competition were created by students from Beaver High School, Box Elder High School, Cedar City High School, Canyon View High School, Christian Heritage High School, Dixie High School, Grantsville High School, Juab High School, Kanab High School, Milford High School, Pine View High School, Sky View High School, Sorenson’s Ranch, Tuacahn High School and Wasatch High School.
The competition was adjudicated by the faculty of the SUU Art Department. Awards of merit and cash awards will be presented at the awards presentation and reception, which will also include explanations of the judging decisions by the faculty. One-on-one critiques and interaction between the SUU faculty and the student artists will also be an integral part of the evening.
The Braithwaite Fine Arts Gallery is open from noon to 7 p.m., Monday through Friday, and is free and open to the public. The reception and awards presentation will be held at the Gallery on December 2, from 7 to 9 pm., and is open to the public without charge.
