I was pleased to be invited to be a Regional Juror (Central Franklin County) for this year's 2022 Ohio Governor's Youth Awards. It was such an honor to do so! I always love being on jurying committees... but, this one was extra special because I have many fond memories from when I was in High School and being excited to enter my art into this fun competition. The opportunities that sprung from it were unique for that age of student.
It is so refreshing to see how this competition is still going strong. It's such an awesome opportunity for those teens who are serious about taking their portfolio to the next level (ie: college scholarships, internship opportunities, etc). There really isn't anything else like it!
To be able to put my heart into the competition from the angle as a Juror this year (24 years later... lol) was just as exciting. There are hundreds of heart-felt works that were submitted and many talents!
If you are interested in seeing the artworks that made it into the regional...they will be on view at the The McConnell Arts Center (MAC in Worthington, OH) from March 24 thru May 14, 2022. There will be a Closing Reception on Saturday, May 14, 1-4pm.
I will posts some of the selected works once the exhibit is open!
