2010 Scholarship Winners

We are please to announce the winners of the two art scholarships awarded by the Craft Guild for 2010.  The first place winner was Allaura Stadel who presented us with two pieces of her art work (shown above).  Allaura is a graduating senior from Bear River High School.

The second place scholarship recipient is Mason Martinez, a senior from Nevada Union High School. Mason's two entries were the drawing and painting shown below. (Unfortunately, you can see my reflection in the glass when I photographed his painting).

The judging was attended by 10 guild members, who ranked each entry on the quality and presentation of the art pieces and also on the essay that accompanied their work. Cecilia Thatcher was able to attend the scholarship award ceremony at Bear River High and give Allaura her scholarship check. 

The guild wants to heartily congratulate the winners of this year's scholarships and wish them the very best of luck in their future art studies.
