About the Exhibit

Each year MartinArts presents the Marvin S. Cone Annual High School Juried Art Show to recognize the artistic talents of Martin County high school students. The art teachers at each school select each piece of artwork for entry in the exhibit. It is a highly competitive process; the categories for cash awards are photography, painting, sculpture, mixed media/assemblage, printmaking, and drawing. The awards reception is held at the Court House Cultural Center Gallery. Additionally, 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.
