The 2019 Scholastic Art Show is currently taking place at the Whitney building at OCC. The show opened Tuesday the 22nd with a ceremony for silver and gold key winners, and will run through Friday March 1st. This prestigious national competition begins at the state level by region. This year there were 5,673 works of art submitted by over 2,500 students from the Central NY region, which is the second largest region in the national competition. Cazenovia High School had 35 students participate in this year’s competition, submitting 74 individual works of art. Ten of the students were seniors who also submitted an 8 piece portfolio representative of their hard work, dedication and growth as artists throughout their career at Cazenovia. The regional award winners were listed in the January 27th Sunday Post Standard.
Our Gold Key winners’ work will now advance to national judging in New York City, with the National Medal winners to be announced on March 12, 2019.
