Mission Health/A-B Tech Conference Center (16 Fernihurst Drive, Asheville 28801)
The Museum, with the assistance of its volunteer docents and support from the Asheville Area Section of the American Institute of Architects, is proud to sponsor the 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. The Museum works with the Alliance for Young Artists & Writers to facilitate regional judging of student artwork and recognition of our community’s burgeoning artistic talent.
In early spring each year, award winners are featured in an exhibition, and are honored at a ceremony. Regional Gold Key recipients’ work will be sent to the National Scholastic Art competition hosted by the Alliance for Young Artists & Writers.

A selection of artwork receiving regional awards is on view in the lobby of the Mission Health/A-B Tech Conference Center February 4–March 12, 2019. The exhibition is open for small groups of visitors Monday–Friday, 9–11am and 2–4pm. To reserve a guided tour of the exhibition, or to request a different day/time, please click here.
All regional award recipients will be honored at a ceremony on Sunday, February 17, 1:30pm at the Mission Health/A-B Tech Conference Center with a reception immediately following.
Groups of at least 10 students or adults are invited to schedule a tour of the Museum’s Collection or special exhibitions. Our inquiry-based group visits, led by volunteer docents or Museum staff, challenge visitors to hone their observation skills.
