NEWS & EVENTS

Marvin S. Cone Juried Art Show

Since it was established in 1987, the Marvin S. Cone Annual High School Juried Art Show has recognized the artistic talents of Martin County high school students.

For the event, presented by the Arts Council of Martin County, art teachers from each of the high schools in the county select every piece of artwork for entry in the exhibit in a highly competitive process.

Categories for cash awards are photography, painting, sculpture, mixed media/assemblage, printmaking, and drawing. 

Each high school principal and the school superintendent select pieces to purchase that become a part of a permanent collection at their respective high schools and the superintendent's office.

These “Purchase Awards” often represent the first sale of art that the emerging student artists can claim in what may inspire a future career.

In previous years, an exciting and celebratory awards reception has been held at the Court House Cultural Center Gallery in Stuart.

Along with the other rites of passage that COVID19 took from students this year, the traditional awards ceremony was cancelled. 

But, thanks to modern technology, you can enjoy the entire exhibit on an exciting virtual tour.

 

All entries are included.

First place winners in each category are:

Best of Show: Sempre (Always) by Isabella Lake

Drawing: Jelly Bean by Gigi Copeland

Mixed Media: Unrequited by Isabella Gallese

Painting:  Nuit de Gaiete’ by Fiona Cobler
