Saugatuck High School art students Kalie Lavery (12th), Paisley Sipes (11th), and Madelyn Moore (10th) are celebrating their efforts after hearing the results of the Michigan Art Education Association’s statewide art competition. All three students had their pieces chosen as part of the “Top 100” high school pieces in the state of Michigan. In addition, Lavery’s colored pencil self-portrait titled Curiosity and Moore’s etching titled Chicago ranked in the top 30 of all pieces and will be a part of the “Governor’s Traveling Show” and will travel throughout the state of Michigan for the next year, going on display at various locations. Finally, not only did Lavery’s piece score in the top 30, but finished as part of the elite “Top 18”, the highest honor of the competition.
All three of the selected pieces will be on display at Western Michigan University’s Richmond Gallery from May 18th - May 20th as a part of the prestigious Michigan Youth Arts Festival.
