Three students at Marianapolis Preparatory School were recently honored by the Connecticut Art Education Association at the annual Connecticut Regional Scholastic Art Awards.
All three Marianapolis students received an Honorable Mention for their artwork: Senior Jiarui “Cherry” Zhang ’17 of Beijing, China for her untitled illustration, Pin-Jung “Elisa” Chen ’17 of Taipei City, Taiwan for her artwork entitled “Fabric Illustration,” and Erin Miller ’17 of Webster, MA for her photograph “Legs.”
The Scholastic Art Awards is the largest juried student art competition in the state. Student artwork is juried by professional artists and university art faculty and is selected on merit for inclusion in a statewide art exhibition held at the Hartford Art School.
All accepted work from Marianapolis, along with thousands of other pieces from throughout the state, will be displayed in the regional gallery show at the Silpe Gallery on the University of Hartford campus. The show runs until February 3, and is open for public viewing Monday - Friday 10 a.m. - 4:00 p.m and weekends 12:00 noon - 4:00 p.m.
