Douglas High School will host its annual student art show in the school library 6-8 p.m. Thursday. Admission is free, and the show will remain up until the following Monday.
Drawings, paintings, prints, photography, ceramics, and graphic design pieces and short stories by creative writing students are featured, according to art teacher Kelley Yost.
Award winning art and writing pieces from this year’s Scholastic Art awards will be on display. Many pieces were recognized at the state level, and several students won top honors and scholarships for individual works and portfolio submissions.
Recently, The Capital City Arts Initiative announced that the winner of the 2023 Aim $500 scholarship was Douglas High School senior Paloma Moon for her “Scarlett” pen and ink drawing.
Moon will attend the University of Nevada, Reno, in the fall.
She was one of only five artists in Northern Nevada to win an American Visions Award for her pen and ink portrait, “Greg.”
Sabrina Settelmeyer, Sydney Williams, and Peter Rivera were each awarded $1,000 scholarships for their senior portfolio works.
