LPA Student Photography Award - $100
Students from Antelope Valley Union High School District (AVUHSD) are showcasing their artistic talents in a wide range of media in this annual exhibition co-organized by the Lancaster Museum of Art & History (MOAH) and AVUHSD teachers. Past exhibitions have included photography, sculpture, painting, drawing, digital media and ceramic arts.
For many years, the LPA has offered a Lancaster Photography Association $100 Student Award. Judges from the LPA consisted of Lyle Trusty, Bonnie Matthews, and Holly Peskin. They selected the photograph “In His Hands” created by Cole VanderReith as the winner of this year’s award. The special award was presented at the opening reception at City Hall on April 5, 2012.
Judges comments were as follows: Cole’s picture shows a keen awareness of the qualities of a winning image. IMPACT is outstanding. Good COMPOSITION is supported by the reflection of the buildings and the hands holding the subject. TECHNICAL aspects of sharpness and depth of field support the high quality of the print. The STORY element evokes sentimental feelings, and the photographer has presented the image in a professional way.
The exhibition runs from April 6 - May 20, 2012 and is located at Lancaster City Hall as the museum is preparing for a move to its new facility. Come show your support for these young artists.
