Yarmuth’s Congressional Art Winners Are Awesome

April 6th, 2012 by jake · 4 Comments

Yesterday, Congressman John Yarmuth’s office announced the winners of his Congressional Art Competition. Mary-Kathryn Smith of Assumption High School was the top pick.

Here’s a look at “Fear at Night” by Smith, an oil painting:

“This competition is about cultivating a love of art and encouraging young people to get involved in creative endeavors,” Yarmuth said. “I am proud to take Mary-Kathryn’s painting to Washington, where it will not only represent her accomplishments, but everything young artists in Louisville are capable of and the unique qualities of our city’s arts scene: history, promise, creativity, and engagement.”

See the other winners after the jump…

Second Place: “Neema” – Micah McClain, DuPont Manual High School

Third Place: “Scissors Chine-Colle” – Amy Hoagland, Male High School

Best Use of Color: “Natural Solitude” – Diana Pickett, Pleasure Ridge Park High School

Best Use of Materials: “Squirrel” – Jordan Underwood, Pleasure Ridge Park High School

Best Use of Narrative: “Self Portrait” – Noah Randolph, Male High School

Congratulations to the winners!

    What talented young people we have! It is a shame that they will probably have to leave Louisville to have a decent future….

    Yep. It’s at no cost and mostly Republicans like Geoff Davis take part.
