Student welding sculpture added to Carson Valley Days Art Show

The Carson Valley Artist Association is sponsoring a welding sculpture competition for high school students.

This is an opportunity for students who have learned welding techniques through school or individuals, to show their talent, craftsmanship and artistic side to the public. The competition is designed to give students a chance to use their basic skills and take them to the creative side of the craft. It could also be good for their careers and resum├ęs in the future.

During the CVAA-sponsored annual Carson Valley Days Art Show that takes place the same time as the Carson Valley Days celebration, there will be a new category, "student welding sculpture." Welders of high school age can let their imaginations go wild and see what they can create, with their final artwork displayed during the art show at the CVIC Hall in Minden.

The art show will be June 9-11. The category requirements are to use metal work used in metal fabrication (welding) and the competition is open to high school students from Douglas, Carson City, Lyon and Mono counties.

There will be a cash prize, ribbons and an article with photograph published in the local papers; The Record-Courier, Nevada Appeal and more.

The deadline is April 1, which may be extended to allow for more entries.

If your school or individual students are interested and want to get further information or applications, please reply as soon as possible to one of the following: CVAA Carson Valley Days Show Chair Margaret Biggs or CVAA President Beth Bosman at e-mail or call 782-5606; Reiko Hervin e-mail or call 465-1163.
