High school artists from Archbold and Pettisville picked up several awards in the Best of Fulton County High School Art Show, sponsored by the Black Swamp Arts Council.
The artwork was displayed in the atrium at Northwest State Community College, April 14-20.
“Once again, the show was an impressive display of local high school talent, which made some difficult decisions for the judges, said Diane Tinsman, BSAC president.
“We heard so many positive comments from NSCC faculty, staff, and students about the quality of the artwork. They couldn’t believe it was a high school show,” she said.
David Lauber, an AHS student, won the Best of Show award for his pen-andink drawing, “King of the Beasts.”
Aaron Bontrager, Archbold, received the Award of Excellence for a pen-and-ink drawing, “Tree-Lined Path.”
Stacy Wyse, also of AHS, received an honorable mention for her acrylic painting, “The Eyes of Africa.”
Chris Matthews, Pettisville High School, received an honorable mention for a hand-colored linocut, “Dino Time.”
