Artwork Of 3 SSHS Students To Be Featured March 3-21 In TVAA Showcase At UTD

The artwork of three Sulphur Springs students will be featured at The University of Texas-Dallas next month. The art will be among approximately 150 pieces selected from those entered in the Texas Visual Arts Association 2020 High School Competition.

“The Texas Visual Arts Association holds one of the most competitive art shows in the state each year at UTD,” said Dr. Philip Dick, Sulphur Springs High School art instructor.

The contest is open to high school student in Texas and is designed to feature young Texans’ talents in all manner of media. While the competition typically features more than 1,000 submissions, only about 150 pieces are selected for the exhibition.

Selections in the various media categories will be highlighted with awards. Dean and sponsor awards are also presented.

While the final tallies aren’t yet in the 2020 contest and award winners, six pieces of artwork from SSHS students were accepted over the weekend to the competition.

Callie Harvey had three art works accepted, according to Dr. Dick. Her works use colored pencil and acrylic to depict dogs and horse.

Abby Scott had two portrait paintings accepted and Kennedy Lee had a graphite drawing of hands accepted, the art teacher reported.

The TVAA exhibit will be on display at the UTD SP/N Gallery from March 3 until March 21.
