Scholastic Art Awards
The Gold Key and Silver Key winners of the 2019 Scholastic Art Awards have been chosen and are on display at the Regis West Gallery at the University of Minnesota. Osseo Senior High School stood out, especially in ceramics and photography.
Daniel Prody has been teaching ceramics at Osseo for a decade.
“We’ve just developed the program through the years. Through a lot of hard work and a lot of people helping out,” said Prody.
The works on display at the Regis have been selected by a juried panel. Jack White has two Gold Key pieces on display at the Regis.
“One, I didn’t think was going to get any awards. It was just a piece that I had made. It had nice form, but otherwise nothing special. And then the other one I made, it was two piece. I threw one on one wheel and then on another wheel. I threw another piece and I ended up joining together for that second piece,” said White.
Each of Osseo Senior High Gold Key winners has the chance to advance in competition.
“If you got a Gold Key and your work is displayed down at the Regis you are going on to represent Minnesota at the regional competition. And depending on how you’re selected at the regional competition you could be invited to the national competition at Carnegie Hall in New York,” said Prody.
Meanwhile, back in ceramics class.
“It’s kind of a place that everybody likes to hang out. You come here and you throw, and all my friends are in the class,” said White.
The program at Osseo Senior High keeps getting better. The Minnesota Scholastic Art Awards exhibition will be on display at the Regis West Gallery at the University of Minnesota through February 22nd.
