Congratulations to Loveland High School Junior Lilly Rohling, whose two artworks “Shower Frenzy” (colored pencil drawing) and “Inclination” (video) have been selected for the 2020 Ohio Governor’s Youth Art Exhibition!
The exhibition, now in its 50th year, is open to all of Ohio’s 1,112 public and private high schools and dedicated to the educational and artistic advancement of talented youth in the state. The purpose is to provide budding artists with opportunities to advance their talent through scholarships and entering their work in a competition. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, no official awards ceremony – or actual exhibit - will take place this year.
Executive Director of the Ohio Governor’s Youth Art Exhibition expressed his disappointment:
“This was not the year that any of us had planned. One of the highlights of my school year is having the honor of recognizing Ohio’s talented young artists in person. My heart is heavy for the 2020 student-artists who were selected for an exhibition that was never hung.”
300 winners were selected from 15 regions across the state. For the full listing, see this link
