2020 Statewide High School Juried Art Exhibit

 In Art and Gallery Shows, Current News

In January 2020 Alabama high school students in grades 10th-12th began submitting work for the SCAC’s annual Statewide High School Juried Art Exhibit. Each year the SCAC hosts this gallery show to showcase the talented students from across Alabama. Out of 370 works of art entered, only 86 works were accepted into the exhibit. Students submitted work in the categories of drawing, painting, 3D design, photography, and mixed-media. Each work of art was as unique as the artist who created it. Even in the midst of a global pandemic, the SCAC could not let this incredible exhibit go unseen.

Judges Joseph Bennett from the University of Montevallo and Melissa Yes from UAB were given the task of selecting the accepted art works and for judging the final round of entries. After carefully considering each work of art, Bennett and Yes returned their final decisions for the best in each category and an overall best in show.

Although the SCAC was not able to open the EBSCO Fine Art Gallery to the public to view this exhibit and host an awards reception, they were able to show the exhibit to the public through the help of Dudley Productions’s virtual gallery tour video and virtual awards ceremony.

The SCAC would like to thank the University of Montevallo’s Department of Art, UAB’s Department of Art and Art History and the Blue Cross Blue Shield Caring Foundation for making this show possible. Although this show may look a little different during these unusual times, we are honored and proud of all of the hard work these talented high schoolers put into their art work. THANK YOU for participating!
