  • Patton High Visual Arts student win at the Scholastic Art and Writing Award contest

        Patton High School Visual Arts students will be honored at the Asheville Museum of Art’s 2017 WNC Regional Scholastic Art Awards.  Since 1923, the Alliance for Young Artists & Writers, Inc. has conducted the National Scholastic Art Awards to encourage and recognize student achievements in the visual arts. From entries, 3 works have been recognized by the judges as Gold Key, Silver Key, or Honorable Mention award recipients. Those works receiving Regional Gold Key awards will be sent to compete in the National Scholastic Art Awards Program.

         “The WNC Regional Scholastic Art Awards are one of the most important community outreach programs provided by the Asheville Art Museum and the Asheville Area Section of the American Institute of Architects. We are so happy to be able to highlight the top artistic achievements of our region. The talent displayed by our area students is a shining reflection upon the dedicated support they receive from their art teachers. These teachers play a vital role in the development of students who can and will succeed in whatever career path they pursue.” Says Erin Shope the museum’s School & Family Programs Manager.

         Since their founding, the Awards have identified the early promise of some of our nation’s most exceptional visionaries.  Our alumni include artists like Andy Warhol.   Panelists look for works that best exemplify the Awards’ core values:  originality, technical skill, and the emergence of personal voice or vision. The Scholastic Art & Writing Awards continues to be the longest-running, most prestigious recognition program for creative teens in the U.S., and the largest source of scholarships for young artists and writers. 

                The 2017 Scholastic Art Awards Recognition ceremony will be held February 26, 2017 at 1:30 pm in Asheville, NC in the Diana Wortham Auditorium at the Asheville Museum of Art.  It is an honor to be chosen to represent your school in this regional event.  We are proud to announce the following Regional Scholastic Art and Writing Award winners for Patton High School Visual Arts students: Ben Helton received a Silver Key for a Fashion entry of a handmade scarf made on a floor loom and his work will be on display at the museum until February 26th;  Kimberly Dellinger won an Honorable Mention in the Sculpture category for a book sculpture; and Raelyn “Shae” Brown won an Honorable Mention in the Printmaking category for a print.  All students will be recognized at the ceremony on February 26, at 1:30 pm in the Diana Wortham Auditorium in Asheville.
