WSCC 20th Annual High School Art Competition

The West Shore Community College Art Department is hosting the 20th annual Regional High School Art Competition and Exhibit in the college’s Manierre Dawson Gallery.

Student artwork will be displayed through March 22, and the exhibit is free and open to the public.


Ribbons have been awarded for first and second place in jewelry, sculpture, pottery, drawing, painting, printmaking, photography, video, textiles, mixed media, and digital imaging due to the West Shore Community College Foundation and the WSCC Art Department.

Area high schools entered ten of their students’ best works and those included in the exhibit were selected by high school art teachers. The juror for this year’s show is WSCC photography instructor Bill Sievert, who is also a painter.

The Manierre Dawson Gallery is located in the Arts and Sciences Center. Gallery hours are 9 a.m. - 4 p.m. Monday through Thursday, Friday from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m., and during events held in the Center Stage Theater.
