Congratulations to senior Leah Bohatch and junior Veronica Valdes, whose paintings won entry into the Beaux Arts Student Artist Showcase, which took place at The Lowe Art Museum, Jan. 13-14. Bohatch’s artwork is titled “Reflection: Young Girl in front of Lighthouse.” Valdes’ artwork is is titled “Girl Before Mirror: Hair Day.”
The goal of the Student Artist Showcase is to encourage young artists and support educational development in the community. The Student Artist Showcase provides middle and high school students in grades 6 to 12 from across Miami-Dade County a chance to participate in a juried art competition and to present their work to the art community in a museum setting. In addition to having their artwork displayed in an exhibition held at the Lowe Art Museum on the University of Miami campus, finalists receive a certificate of participation and have the opportunity to win cash prizes in five categories.
