The Friends of the Yellow Barn Studio are excited to present the 24nd Annual High School Art Exhibition, an annual high school art competition we have sponsored for the past 23 years.
This year the virtual, juried exhibition includes exceptional artwork by talented high school students from DMV area high schools. Congratulations to the awardees! Every year forty outstanding works are juried into this show.
First Prize of $500, Second Prize of $250, and Third Prize of $100 are awarded to our judge’s top three picks.
Plaza Gift Certificates of $25 are given to the 37 additional students whose works’ juried into this exhibit.
The Friends of the Yellow Barn Studio would like to express our “Thanks” to several very important people and groups without whom this show would not have been possible.
We sincerely thank The Friends membership and supporters whose dues and generous donations allow us to give back to our community for this very worthy event.
A big shout out to the High Schools in the DMV whose teachers motivated their students to produce works of art that were as unique as each one of them. This year’s 14 participating schools included; Albert Einstein High School, Bethesda Chevy Chase High School, Holton Arms, Home School, Walter Johnson High School, Landon, Middletown High School, Northwest High School, Richard Montgomery High School, South Lake High School, H.B. Woodlawn High School, Thomas S. Wootton High School,
Washington Waldorf School and West Potomac High School.
We are very grateful to Leo Ramos, popular Yellow Barn Instructor, for his expertise and time to jury the forty competitive artworks from the 133 submissions. Leo has received several awards including Maryland Distinguished Scholar in the Arts, and Congressional Scholar in the Arts. In addition he has placed First and Second in Kensington’s plein air events. His work can be seen at Gallery 322 in Frederick, MD.
And, we would like to express our gratitude to Jack Fuller who every year has donated the “Second Place” award in memory of his wife, Mitzi Yater Fuller, a Washington artist and teacher who was a devoted student of the Yellow Barn for many years. You can view her work on our Donation Page.
Lastly, we would like to thank Plaza Art for their continued support and dedication to The Friends! Our events would not be the same without Plaza Art… Yay Plaza!!
This year some of our student artists put their work up for sale. The artists are responsible for the sale and delivery of their works. The Friends will put the artist in touch with a prospective buyer. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if there is interest.
Congrats to the young artists and many thanks to their teachers and families who supported this event!
