Over 100 years of Serving and Preserving in the Frederick Community
2018 Art Competition
The 2018 Frederick Woman’s Civic Club Youth Art Competition was a wonderful success with 85 students from grade 6-12 participating. There was a wide range of media represented and the work was extremely high quality. We are very proud of the young artists in Frederick County and very pleased to be able to give them a chance to be recognized.
On January 5, 2018 the Frederick Woman’s Civic Club held the opening reception at Frederick Community College’s Mary Hodgson Art Gallery. Awards were presented in three categories: High School Drawing and Painting, High School Digital/Photography, and Middle School Drawing and Painting. Each category had a First ($100), Second ($75), Third ($50), and Honorable Mention ($25) winner. All of the students received certificates. Mr. Wendell Poindexter, Art Program Manager of FCC and Ms. Paula Rubin-Wexler, artist and FAC Board Member served as judges. Over 200 students, parents, friends, family, and administrators attended the event. Ms. Elizabeth Keyser Selby was presented as the keynote speaker. Works of art will remain on exhibit at the Mary Hodgson Art Gallery, FCC until January 18, 2018.
The award winners will have an opportunity to compete at the regional level, in March and then the state level in April.
Money was raised for this event by the women of FWCC through the sales of White House Christmas Ornaments.
