Arts / Exhibits
For the past 32 years, The Arts Council has presented the prestigious Marvin S. Cone Annual High School Juried Art Show. This exhibit and awards presented recognize the artistic talents of local high school students.
Established in 1987, the Marvin S. Cone Annual High School Juried Art Show honors its founder and his enthusiasm for young people, the arts, and his timeless effort in making the event what it is today. Mr. Cone was a local writer, poet, art collector, entrepreneur, and educator. Inspired by the creativity of art students in Martin County, he encouraged them to pursue even greater achievements by transforming the annual high school art exhibit into an event that truly recognized student's artistic accomplishments.
The exhibit will be at the Court House Cultural Center Gallery April 19 through May 25. Hours are Tuesday-Friday 10 a.m.-4 p.m. and Saturdays from 11 a.m. -2 p.m.
Awards will be presented at the Awards Reception on Wednesday, May 2 from 5:30-7pm for the Best of Show, as well as 1st, 2nd, and 3rd places in each of five mediums: sculpture, drawing, photography/digital prints, painting, and mixed media. A unique component of the High School Juried Art show is the awarding of Purchase Awards. Purchase awards often represent the first sale of art that the emerging student artists can claim in what may inspire a future career choice
Judges will be Marshall Adams, executive director or A.E. Backus Museum & Gallery and nationally-known wildlife artist, Guy Coheleach. Exhibit chair will once again be Tom Prestopnik.
