Attention! All High School Artists

All artists in 9th through 12th grades are invited to show their favorite work of 2013-2014 in the 5th Annual High School Art Show hosted by the Seguin Art league.

No entry fee is required, and each artist can enter up to two pieces in any medium. Artwork must be ready for display. Frames or canvasses of two-dimensional pieces must be wired and ready to hang. Deliver your artwork to the Selig Room, Guadalupe Regional Medical Center East Campus, 1215 E. Court St., on Thursday, May 1, between 4 and 6 PM with a completed entry form for each piece. Click here to print all instructions and entry form. The show will hang from May 2 through May 24.

Artists, teachers, families, and guests are invited to the awards reception from 6 to 7 PM Friday, May 9. Refreshments will be served, and cash prizes will be awarded to First ($100), Second ($75), and Third Place ($50) winners plus one or more Honorable Mentions ($20). (The artist or parent must be present at the reception to receive a cash prize.)

You may offer your work for sale if you wish. The Seguin Art League charges a 25% commission on any artwork sold. You must pick up your artwork on Saturday, May 24, between 10 AM and 12 noon. Artwork not picked up will be disposed of.
