UL ART STUDENT WINS 6TH CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT ART COMPETITION

UL ART STUDENT WINS 6TH CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT ART COMPETITION

Congressman Bill Johnson (R-Marietta) is pleased to announce that Summer Emory, a junior at Union Local High School will represent his office in the United States Capitol as a winner in the 2017 Congressional Art Competition, An Artistic Discovery.

Miss Emory’s artwork, titled “Mr. Hoeffner”, was done on clayboard. Clayboard is a modern art form of scratchboard in which a wood panel is coated with clay, covered in black ink, and then “scratched” by the artist.

As district winner, Miss Emory is invited to participate in a ceremony in late June in Washington D.C. with the other congressional district winners from around the country. Southwest Airlines generously donated two tickets to each district winner and a parent to be used for travel to and from the ceremony.

This is the 5th time in the last 7 years that the 6th Congressional District Art Competition winner is a student at Union Local High School in the class of teacher Lisa Marple.

Residents of Eastern and Southeastern Ohio will be able to view Miss Emory’s work while on guided tours of the Capitol building. The artwork of other finalists will be displayed in Representative Johnson’s Washington D.C. and district offices.

The students’ artwork was judged by a panel the week of May 1st.

The final winning spot will be up for a public vote on Congressman Johnson’s Facebook page beginning on Thursday, May 11th. Five entries (from Carrollton, Canfield, Union Local, Indian Valley and Southern Local) will be posted, and the artwork receiving the most “likes” by Sunday, May 14th at 11:59 pm will be named the “People’s Choice” winner, and will be displayed in a district office.
