Call for Student Artwork


The Cooperstown Art Association will be hosting “An Artistic Discovery,” a Congressional High School Art Competition for Otsego County High School Students March 2 through 23.  This exhibit of student work is open to all students in grades 9 – 12 living within Otsego County.  Six students from eligible schools that are part of the 24th Congressional District will receive ribbons for their work at the CAA and will go on to exhibit at Munson-Williams-Proctor Art Institute joined by student artwork from Broome, Cayuga, Chenango, Cortland, Herkimer, Oneida, Ontario & Seneca Counties, Tioga and Tompkins Counties.  From there one student’s work will go on to be displayed in the corridor leading to the US Capitol along with 49 other high-school artists’ work from across the country.

The categories open for competition are painting, drawing, collage, printmaking, mixed media, computer generated artwork and photography.  The competition aspect of “An Artistic Discovery” is open only to two-dimensional artwork, however, this particular show at the CAA welcomes three-dimensional and sculptural pieces for display purposes only.  The CAA also asks that no more than two two-dimensional pieces be submitted per student. Artwork should be delivered on Saturday, February 25th, 11-4pm.

A full and more specific list of rules has been sent to the art departments and guidance departments of each school. Students should see their art teachers or guidance counselors for information on how to participate.  Home schooled students residing in Otsego County are welcome to participate and can contact the CAA at (607) 547-9777 for more information.
