2015 All-County High School Art Show Winners

The St. Johns County School District and the St. Augustine Art Association recently announced the winners of the 10th annual All-County High School Art Show. The St. Augustine Art Association is presenting the All-County High School Art Show March 6-29. Art teachers in all district high schools selected a combined total of 150 student works of art for the exhibit. The materials range from experimental digital media and graphite studies to abstract pottery and sculptural assemblages. Installed by teacher Rebecca Williams and coordinated by St. Johns County Fine Arts Program Specialist Tommy Bledsoe, the exhibition was judged by Cable Spence, an artist, musician and Advisory Board member of the St. Augustine Art Association. Students won cash awards and memberships to the St. Augustine Art Association. The Best in Show and first-place winners will be recognized at the April 14 School Board meeting. The St. Augustine Art Association is located at 22 Marine Street, St. Augustine.
