Outstanding teen artists awarded by CNY art program

Thousands of creative junior and senior high students submitted their best art work and hundreds received honors for their award winning entries in the 2010 Central New York Scholastic Art Awards program, sponsored by M&T Bank.

More than 4,500 works of art were judged in 15 categories for entry in national competition and to receive local cash prizes and/or special recognition. Following the recent Awards Ceremony, a 1,000-piece exhibit of winning art works was unveiled at Onondaga Community College. The exhibit is free and open to the public through Feb. 26 in the Whitney Applied Technology Center on OCC's campus.

Select works will also be on display at the Everson Museum of Art, in Syracuse, March 6 to April 4.

Many pieces will be submitted for this spring's national competition. Last year, the 13-county CNY Region produced nine national award winners.
