and Award Ceremony:
11, 5 - 7pm
In the third year of this annual exhibition, AVA approached
30 regional Vermont and New Hampshire public, private, and vocational high
schools, requesting art faculty to nominate works by students who show
exceptional promise in one of the following eight creative disciplines: Ceramics, Drawing, Painting, Photography,
Printmaking, Digital Art, Sculpture, and Wearable Art. The Ceramics and Wearable Art categories are
both being introduced for the first time this year and awards will be given in
each category. Also new for 2011, as a
separate category, is the VINS Environmental Award, which will be presented by
Vermont Institute of Natural Science (VINS) to the student who creates a work
of art with the most compelling environmental message. This year’s awards will be chosen by Susan
Walp, painter and Lecturer in Studio Art at Dartmouth College.
