2017 WNC Regional Scholastic Art Awards

January 28 - March 12, 2017 | On the Slope

While admission is free at our temporary “On The Slope” location, we do encourage a suggested $5 donation to support the Museum’s programs serving all of WNC.

The Asheville Art Museum, with the assistance of its volunteer docents and support from the Asheville Area Section of the American Institute of Architects and the Center for Craft, Creativity & Design, is proud to sponsor the annual WNC Regional Scholastic Art Awards. Students in grades 7-12 from all across our region are invited to submit work for this special juried competition. A selection of artwork receiving regional awards will be on view in the Gallery on the Slope through March 12, 2017.

All regional award recipients will be honored at a ceremony on Sunday, February 26 at 1:30 p.m. in the Diana Wortham Theatre. Regional Gold Key recipients’ work will be sent to the National Scholastic Art competition in New York City. For more information on the Scholastic Art Awards, visit www.artandwriting.org.
