L-W East, L-W North art students honored at regional competition

Among them are 15 “Gold Key” award winners that will advance to the national competition this summer in New York.

Fifty pieces of artwork by Lincoln-Way East and Lincoln-Way North high school students have been selected for inclusion in the Scholastic Art Competition in Downers Grove.

Among them are 15 “Gold Key” award winners that will advance to the national competition this summer in New York.

“The Scholastic Art Competition is the most recognized and prestigious junior high and high school art exhibition in the nation,” said Phil Labriola, the art department chair at Lincoln-Way East and Lincoln-Way North high schools. 

“In our region, area schools submitted 2,330 works with only 851 pieces accepted for inclusion,” he added. “With the amount of work and the exceptional quality represented, it is indeed an honor to be selected.”

The 50 drawings, paintings, photographs and digital art pieces selected for inclusion from Lincoln-Way East and Lincoln-Way North will be displayed at Downers Grove North High School through Feb. 15.

Area residents are invited to view the pieces during an opening reception honoring the students and their families from 1 to 4 p.m. Feb. 10 at Downers Grove North High School, 4436 Main St., Downers Grove.

Visitors may park in the Main Street lot at the corner of Grant Street and Main Street and walk directly across the street to the main entrance and school lobby where the show will be exhibited.

Those unable to attend the reception may view the pieces from 7 a.m. until 9 p.m. Feb. 11-15.

Among the 50 pieces from Lincoln-Way East and Lincoln-Way North are 15 “Gold Key” award winners (signifying high levels of originality, technique and personal vision); 12 “Silver Key” award winners (signifying achievement worthy of recognition); and 23 “Honorable Mention” award winners (signifying work that demonstrates artistic potential).
