More than 20 student artists were honored by the Scholarship Foundation of Santa Barbara during a presentation and reception at the Santa Barbara Museum of Art, with each of them receiving a $2,500 scholarship and their artwork exhibited in the museum’s Family Resource Center.

“We have held this event for 41 years now, and the winning submissions are always impressive,” says foundation board chair Christie Glanville. “We are proud to recognize these extraordinarily talented artists and provide them with their scholarships.”

The works, done by 70 students, were judged by prominent local artists – Anthony Askew, Ginny Brush, and Patti Jacquemain – at the Ridley-Tree Educational Center at McCormick House.

Santa Barbara High senior Evan Sherman won the Schall Family Best of Show prize and received an additional $1,000 scholarship.
