The Opal Center for Arts & Education has been featuring local artists since January by updating the front-window display case, and for March, students submitted original art to the first contest and were awarded this week. All entries are displayed in the Opal Center’s windows for the month of March.
Executive director Michele Rose said it was a tough call for local artists Paula Goodbar, Thi Nguyen and Alex Ihnat, who judged 58 entries submitted, and chose the following winners:
Ages 16-18: 1st: Matthias Donner; 2nd: Evie Smith; 3rd: Russell Johnson
Ages 13-15: 1st: Layla Hamilton; 2nd: Avery Long and June Smith; 3rd: Loriana Yanez Welch, Iylah Molyneaux and Ellah Cardwell
