Two of Simley High School’s top artists were chosen to display their work at Les Farrington’s Best 100 Art Exhibition. The annual juried art show for students in grades 9-12 is sponsored by the JCI of St. Paul. Seniors Eric Burling and Laura Stickney were chosen in late February to participate in this prestigious art show. Laura’s drawing portfolio and Eric’s photography were chosen from nearly 1,000 entries from area schools. The students also received Merit honors for their work at the March 2 Opening Ceremony. Eric also won a Juror’s Award for a $100 scholarship.
Eric’s and Laura’s artwork will also be on display at the District Art Show in May, alongside the work of many other Simley artists.
