NORWICH – Colorscape Chenango Arts Festival is pleased to announce the award of the Francis K. Wilcox Scholarship for Emerging Young Artists to high school students Catherine Behret of Sherburne, Gretchen Bradley also of Sherburne, Melissa Friedel of New Berlin, and Katie Rawluk of McDonough.
“The artwork submitted this year was impressive and the committee had a difficult time selecting the recipients,” said Peggy Finnegan, Colorscape Executive Director. “Fortunately, Francis (Wilcox) was gracious enough to offer the scholarship to four recipients this year instead of the customary three. That made our final decision a little easier.”
The 2009 Francis K. Wilcox Scholarship Awards of $350 per Emerging Young Artist exhibitor will be presented at the complimentary Awards Breakfast on Sunday morning, Sept. 13, at the 15th Annual Colorscape Chenango Arts Festival in downtown Norwich. As well, $100 gift certificates good for Golden Artist Colors products will be awarded to each Emerging Young Artist exhibitor.
