Congratulations to the following students that were recently accepted into the Regina A. Quick Center for the Arts’ Middle-High School Juried Art Digital Exhibition!
In addition to their acceptance into the digital exhibition, Maggie Sischo was awarded “Best In Show” for the watercolor and colored pencil piece, “Purple Vase Still Life,” and Lily Foster was awarded “Best In Show” for the pencil and black colored pencil piece, “Emotions.” Three “Best In Show” awards were offered for our high school submissions with each winner receiving a one-thousand dollar scholarship to attend St. Bonaventure University upon their successful completion of High School and successful admittance to the University.
Only ninety-two works were selected for entry into the exhibition series from over two-hundred and thirty submissions. Works were chosen for admittance by five judges who are working professionals in the Arts and High Education fields and entry was determined using criteria drawn from college level rubrics in the Visual Arts as well as other juried art exhibition guidelines and requirements from the surrounding areas. Kudos to your students and art educator, Mrs. Shields, on passing this rigorous set of standards and earning a place in the digital exhibition.
The Regina A. Quick Center for the Arts is the home of St. Bonaventure University’s world-class collection, including art and historical artifacts that span from the beginnings of civilization into the 21st Century. The QCA annually hosts exhibitions that highlight the University’s art collection along with touring exhibitions and student/curriculum-related exhibitions, including this year’s Middle-High School Juried Art Digital Exhibition
We are proud of these students and all their talents!
