The work of Mason Fletcher, a student in Mr. Chase Campbell’s Sculpture I class, has been selected for display at the 2020 Dogwood Festival student art exhibit. According to the festival’s website (dogwood.org), each year, the Atlanta High School Art Exhibition (AHSAE) offers young artists an opportunity to compete, exhibit their work and earn prizes such as scholarships and art supplies. This “must see” festival event is a juried competition that drew 850 submissions this year from which the best 149 works comprise the festival exhibition. Mason’s “Un-named Jellyfish Lantern” sculpture will be on display at the festival’s satellite location at Binder's Art Gallery in Buckhead.
Established in the early 1970s, the AHSAE recognizes and encourages the fine quality of art created by the area’s high school students. Welcoming entries from high school art students from 12 regional Atlanta counties, the competition offers awards worth more than $40,000 and fills a growing gap in creative opportunities for youth.
