Staff Reports
The Carson Valley Art Association scholarship show at the CVIC Hall on Nov. 2.

The Carson Valley Art Association is offering its 2013 scholarships to all Douglas seniors, which includes home schooled students, planning to continue their art education at an accredited college or art related institution.

Applications are available at Douglas High School and are due March 28, or are available by contacting Beth Bosman at 782-5606.

Interviews will be scheduled to evaluate the students needs, their work and their plans for their continuing art education.

For more information, contact Bosman.

This year, the association is awarding two $1,000 scholarships and some $500 scholarships to ongoing students pursuing their art career.

The students selected for the scholarships will be announced on completion of all the interviews, and in time for enrolling for the fall semester.

The association has been awarding these scholarships for close to 25 years.

It is a nonprofit art organization that presents two major weekend Fine Art Shows at the CVIC Hall as fundraisers for these scholarships.

The first is the non-judged Carson Valley Days Show, the first weekend in June, and the other is a judged Scholarship Benefit Show, the first weekend in November.

In addition, the association has displayed their member artists’ work at WNC Douglas, Douglas County Library, Copeland Cultural Art Center, Holiday Inn Express and recently Gardnerville Mainstreet Gallery. CVAA also donates a painting to a local civic organization, for their own use, each year.
