Mountain Pointe artists awarded scholarships from Shemer Art Center.
Two Mountain Pointe artists were awarded scholarships for their oustanding artwork, now on display in a North Phoenix art center.
Mountain Pointe senior Blue Watanabe and junior Kyrin Mohler, both taught by Fine Arts Department chair Steve Adams, were awarded by members, friends and patrons of the Shemer Art Center. Mohler (top) was awarded for mixed media, and Watanabe (bottom) for digital photography.
Both of their pieces are now on display at the Shemer Art Center’s annual New Horizons High School Student Art Exhibition.
Each year, the Shemer Art Center invites high schools across the Valley to exhibit the works of two distinguished artists. This year 40 high schools participated.
The exhibition will be on display through February 14, 2019.
The pieces will also be on display at Phoenix City Hall from March 18 to 29, 2019. City Hall is open to the public, Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
