Student Artist Showcase starting March 15 at Market Street
THE WOODLANDS – Each year, The Woodlands Arts Council (TWAC) promotes and supports artists of the future through its Student Art Scholarship Competition. Student artists who are active public, private and home-schooled juniors and seniors from the Montgomery County area submit their original works in painting, drawing, mixed media 2D, mixed media 3D, digital art and photography to the competition.
This year, 232 pieces were submitted online, according to TWAC Cultural Outreach Coordinator Chloe Snow, and they will be featured in a special exhibition at Market Street on Thursdays through Saturdays from March 15-31. ”We invite the public to visit this specially curated exhibit to see the creativity, quality and diversity done by these students,” Snow said.
Members of the local community are invited to visit the Student Art Scholarship Exhibit at TWAC offices in Market Street located at 9595 Six Pines Dr., #1060 The Woodlands, TX 77380 (on the corner between Tesla and Chipotle) on Thursdays and Fridays from noon to 6 p.m., and on Saturdays from noon to 4 p.m.
A panel of professors and artists from the greater Houston area will judge each submission and select first, second and third place winners in each category that will be announced on March 24. Each year, TWAC awards over $20,000 in scholarships through this competition. The scholarship program and exhibit is made possible through the generosity of sponsors such as Anadarko Petroleum Corporation and Market Street.
The selected award-winning works, along with honorable mentions, will be on display in the Student Art Scholarship Booth at the 2018 Woodlands Waterway Arts Festival scheduled for April 7 and April 8 in Town Green Park.
