Two Photography Students Win Awards in Statewide Competition

In December, Westminster art and photography students submitted close to 30 works of art and photography to the Connecticut Regional Scholastic Art Awards program, which is an affiliate of the Scholastic Art Awards/The Alliance for Young Artists & Writers. The program recognizes the work of talented young artists in grades seven to 12 and is the nation’s longest-running, most prestigious recognition program for creative teens.

Student artwork is juried by professional artists and university art faculty, and is selected on merit. Winners of “Gold Key” designations have their artwork submitted to the national-level awards competition.

This year, two Westminster students, Aniela Apteker ’24 and Bryan Carey ’24, who submitted works in the photography category, received Gold Key awards in the state competition. They along with other students in their Photography 1 class accompanied their teacher, Jane Toner, to the exhibit of the regional award-winning artwork Jan. 18 at the Silpe Gallery at the University of Hartford. A virtual awards ceremony will take place Feb. 12.
