Wilson College is seeking artwork made by area high school students for an upcoming juried art show to be held at Wilson’s Bogigian Gallery in Lortz Hall. Submissions of up to three works of art are due by midnight on Oct 18.

The exhibition is an opportunity for area students to showcase their work and have it judged by the college art faculty, according to Wilson Professor of Fine Arts Philip Lindsey.

Cash prizes of $200, $100 and $50 will be awarded for first, second and third places, respectively, and other works of note will receive honorable mention. In addition, the following monetary scholarships will be offered to winning students if they enroll at Wilson: $1,000 each year for up to four years for first place; $1,500 for one year for second place; $1,000 for one year for third place.

Students will also be encouraged to offer their work for sale during the exhibition, which will begin Wednesday, Nov. 1, with an opening reception at the gallery and will run through Dec. 8.

The show is open to students from Franklin, Adams, Cumberland and Fulton counties in Pennsylvania and Washington County, Md. All submissions must have been completed while the student was in high school.

There is no entry fee. Entries must be in digital (.jpg) format of up to one megabyte and should be emailed to wilsonartshow@gmail.com. Two- and three-dimensional works of art will be considered for the show. All entries must be exhibit-ready.
