Sweeping Number of University School Student Works Receive Scholastic Art Awards

Middle and Upper School students at University School of NSU recently received regional high honors for more than 60 works of art, nearly half of which will advance to judging at the national level.

The recognition reflects high skill levels across University School’s broad range of arts electives―from ceramics and glass, jewelry and sculpture to drawing, mixed media, painting, print-making and photography―as well as across the judge’s criteria for originality, technical proficiency and personal voice. This year’s expansion of Middle School digital photography classes was particularly evident as 25 photographs received awards.

University School students also captured two of only five American Vision awards. Gillian Newman’s mixed media piece titled “Hoarders,” and Anh Nguyen’s print-making piece titled “Seam-Stress,” were selected from nearly 1,000 entries to receive not only a Gold Key, but to compete separately for the “Best in Show” regional title as well as for the final national exhibition. From over 100,000 submissions nationwide, only 300 works will be chosen for the final exhibit.
