Governor’s Art Competition 2019
Starting Jan. 1 – Deadline Feb.8th 4:00PM
2019 Competition’s Theme: Tell Me a Story
The 2019 Governor’s Young Artist Competition theme is: Tell Me a Story. The purpose of any artwork is to communicate a message and/or to comment, scream or sing about the world in which we live and how we see it. For this year’s competition, we want students to tell us a story that moves both themselves and the viewer through their painting, drawing, photograph or sculpture. Use color, line, gesture, composition or symbolism to convey the story. There should be emotion in the work, and it should have a driving force. The story should express the student’s emotions/feelings by weaving a narrative through their art.
· Artwork must be submitted by a high school teacher or representative
· Each high school teacher/representative may submit up to 15 pieces of artwork, with an individual limit of only 3 submissions per student. Also, this is a juried show.
Entries are NOT guaranteed acceptance.
· There are NO fees associated with submission
· ANY piece created by students at any time during their high school education may be submitted. However, reproductions are NOT allowed.
· Photograph entries (8X10 minimum) are limited to 5 photos per student.
· Work must not exceed 40 inches wide by 40 inches high.
· Minimum size is 11 X 14.
· Work must be physical, tangible, and available to be displayed for the duration of the exhibition. All winning submissions must be ready to hang for a professional gallery. No tape with wire or string will be allowed. Pastel and charcoal drawings must be sprayed with fixative.

On April 8, 2018 Yilin Ma and Marissa Alexander presented their designs for this year's recycled materials fashion show. Yilin had Sadie Belle Reynolds model her Galaxy designed dress with light up leds and Marissa had Heather Harpole model her Pink Japanese Blooming inspired gown. Both teams presented the garments beautifully and we are so proud of them for getting their designs juried into this year's runway show. We had one other submission by Christina Clower, who is the younger sister of Cori Clower submit a beautiful rainbow winged butterfly dress. Christina joined our Curbside workshop and she designed the dress for her sister to wear on the runway. Christina won first place in the Middle School Division and we are also very proud of her accomplishment.
We had a wonderful day on April 11, 2018 at the Young Arkansas Artist Association Art Convention and Competition. After we submitted our work into the categories, we headed out to the River Market to get some breakfast before we explored the works at the Butler Gallery. We then started our photo scavenger hunt to capture great photos to submit to a Photography Contest hosted by the Little Rock Mayor. The sculpture park was the perfect area to use to capture the best images. Next, we went off to lunch and then to see all the art work submitted by other high school students from all over the State.
Congratulations to our award winners this year.
