All high-school-aged students from Navajo and Apache counties, including homeschoolers, are eligible to submit original two- and three-dimensional art or graphic designs for the 35th Annual Juried High School Exhibit, sponsored by Northland Pioneer College (NPC).
The high school exhibit will be featured virtually on NPC’s Talon Gallery webpage from April 1st – April 30th, 2021. “It is an honor to have one’s work chosen for exhibit in a juried show,” states Art Faculty and Talon Gallery Director, Magda Gluszek. “Artwork will be judged for Best of Show, 1st through 3rd place and honorable mention. Best of Show winners will be offered one-year art tuition scholarships to NPC and must be in their senior year of high school,” Gluszek notes. Artwork in any media is eligible. Entries are not limited to class assignments and students do not have to be enrolled in art or photography classes to submit entries.
Entries must be e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org by March 1, 2021, 11:59PM, MST. A short video outlining tips and tricks for photographing and submitting your artwork can be found at www.youtube.com/watch?v=q40if1ecyB0.
In addition, high school seniors with at least 24 current dual or concurrent enrollment credits at NPC or NPC students with a talent for producing 2-D or 3-D art, and with 24 NPC credits or more, are encouraged to apply now for the NPC Friends and Family $3,000 Martia and Louis Smith Memorial Art Scholarship. The deadline for applications is February 26, 2021.
Martia A. Smith was an artist and scholar who served as an instructor and major contributor to NPC's art program. Her husband Louis established a generous endowment fund to honor her memory by awarding a full scholarship to a highly motivated, academically and artistically talented NPC student each year. Louis Smith passed away in December 2020, so now his memorial tribute honors both of them. More information and the application can be found at www.npc.edu/scholarships/martia-and-louis-smith-memorial-art-scholarship.
