Students from the Old Rochester Regional High School received awards at the annual Congressional Art Competition for the 9th Congressional District.
Twelve students displayed artwork in the show: Claire Barry, Danya Bichsel, Abigail Forcier, Amelia Isabelle, Kaitlin Kelley, Christopher Knight, Lindsey Merolla, Mikayla Mooney, Claire Noble-Shriver, Elise Parker, Geneva Smith and Alexandra Vanderpool.
Claire Barry’s linoleum block print, “Siesta Key” won first in the prints category and Elise Parker’s painting “Forest Glow” won third place in the painting category. Claire Noble-Shriver received an honorable mention in the print category as well.
All the artwork was on display at the Plymouth Center for the Arts and an awards reception was held on April 27, 2018. Congressman Bill Keating was there to present the students with their award certificates. It was a wonderful evening celebrating the young artists. The artwork from the show will be on display at the New Bedford AHA! night on May 10. http://www.ahanewbedford.org/calendar.php
