17 Student Artists Honored

Posted by admin in Home, Recent News

Last week, seventeen promising student artists were awarded scholarships at the Scholarship Foundation’s 36th annual Art Exhibition and Reception. These financial awards are part of the Art Scholarship program, which invites high school seniors from the southern part of Santa Barbara County to submit their artwork to be judged by a panel of prominent local artists. The judges this year were Whitney Abbott, Anthony Askew, and Patti Jacquemain.

Students applied to the Art Scholarship program in November. Those selected to compete, presented a portfolio of their best work to the judges at the Santa Barbara Museum of Art’s Ridley-Tree Education Center at McCormick House on Thursday, January 15th. One week later, the winners were feted by their families, Scholarship Foundation supporters, and local art patrons at an exhibition and reception in their honor.
