A quartet of Alta High students been honored for their artistic abilities by being selected to display their pieces of work at the Scholastic Art Awards show in Sioux City this month, an honor granted to only 220 of 892 entries from schools across northwest Iowa.
The artworks of juniors Luke Letzring, Halley Cranston, Sarah Gregg and sophomore Charles Ryherd were selected by judges to be displayed at the Eppley Gallery on the Morningside College campus, an exhibition featuring some of the finest artworks by middle and high school art students in the area.
Letzring earned the nomination for his untitled graphite drawing work, Cranston was selected to present her oil stick drawing, "Heaven," Gregg was selected for her untitled oil stick drawing of tigers, and Ryherd received the nomination for his oil stick drawing entitled "Eye."
Judges also presented Ryherd with the prestigious Gold Key Award, a national honor which had previously been given to only two AHS students. Elizabeth Pedersen and Jocelyn Otto both received the Gold Key Award last year.
