DEPERE  STUDENT  WINS  KAGEN  ART  COMPETITION

 

GREEN BAY, WI– DePere High School’s Brittany Wolske was named the winner of Congressman Kagen’s competition to select the 8th District entry to the 30th Annual Congressional Art Contest in Washington, D.C on April 29.  

Wolske, a junior, earned the award after her digital composition, “Love Me” was selected by a three-judge panel that included  Neville Museum curator Marilyn Stasiak, Appleton Art Center executive director Tim Riley and St. Norbert art instructor Jim Nielson.

Eighth-district congressional representative Steve Kagen, M.D., presented the award to Wolske at the Neville Public Museum of Broen County.

“It’s an honor to be here with such talented young people,” Kagen said.  “All the work on display demonstrates a commitment to excellence from every corner of our district.”

The exhibition, An Artistic Discovery, included submissions from across northeast Wisconsin and a variety of styles and media.

“The exhibit was wonderful,” Nielson said.  “It showed exceptional examples of formal sophistication and awareness among the student artists of the elements and principles of art and design.  Brittany s work revealed strong compositional skills and was as technically refined as it was conceptually interesting.  She was able to express a beautiful idea.”

Appleton East High School’s Ka Yang earned the runner-up award for her work “Consumed by Doom,” while DePere’s Alan De La Cruz took third with a painting entitled “Eggs & Toast.”

Wolske’s piece will hang for one year in the Cannon Tunnel, which leads to the United States Capitol building in Washington, D.C.  She is eligible to compete for the Savannah College of Art & Design’s Artistic Honors Scholarship.
