All State Art Show

Kathryn Roberts

The Utah All-State High School Art Show "honors the best high school artists in the state for their talent, creativity and dedication."  "This year 1,016 works from 100 schools were entered. Of these entries, 337 were selected for display in the exhibition." Spanish Fork High School had three pieces accepted into the show, and two of those won awards. Lily Dayton's painting of the fire above Woodland Hills was accepted. Sarah Wessman's colored pencil drawing "Potpourri" was purchased by the Utah State Board of Education, and won a purchase award. Nic Corradini's photo- "Lifeguard" won an Honorable Mention for the 3rd Congressional District. The school is really proud of these three artists, and all of those who entered the competition with their amazing artwork. Congrats to all participants. Great job representing the Dons.
