Local high school students are invited to participate in Rep. Josh Cutler’s 8th annual Sixth Plymouth District Student Art Competition. Selected works will be hung on display at the Massachusetts State House.
The competition is open to any high school age student living in Pembroke, Duxbury or Whitman-Hanson. Any original piece of artwork completed by the student within the last 18 months and not previously entered in the competition is eligible.
Each student may submit up to three pieces in a format suitable for hanging. Categories are photography, paintings, drawing and pastels and mixed media. There will be an award for Best in Show.
The deadline for submitting entries is Friday, February 14, 2020. Any original student work completed in the past year is eligible. A panel of local artists will judge the works and select winners. Artwork will on display in March at the Massachusetts State House, and an online gallery of all winning entries will be posted to Rep. Cutler’s website.
“We’ve got some talented young artists here on the South Shore and this is a way to showcase their efforts,” said Rep. Cutler. “I can’t wait to see all the entries and be able to share them with our State House visitors.”
Entries should be no larger than 28 inches wide by 28 inches tall by 4 inches thick; not weigh more than 15 pounds; and be original in concept, design and execution.
Entries may be delivered to Rep. Cutler’s office, 620 County Road, Hanson, via their high school teacher, or at the Duxbury Art Association by the entry deadline. Entry forms must be completed and attached to the work.
