Milwaukee - The Milwaukee Art Museum's annual exhibition of works by Wisconsin students in grades seven through 12 is on display, including works from Arrowhead High School (AHS), University Lake School (ULS), Kettle Moraine High School (KMHS), Oconomowoc High School (OHS) and Pewaukee High School (PHS) students. More than 1,000 individual artworks from more than 100 schools across the state participated in the Scholastic Art Awards.

Gold and Silver Key winning artists are on display in Schroeder Galleria and Pieper Gallery through March 17. From AHS, the winners were Sara Christensen and Leah Gazinski; from ULS, the winners were Sam Booz, Elayna Grove, Isabel Seidel and Amar Sra; from KMHS, the winners were Loren Chaney, Karen Fischberg, Triustan Kent, Zach King, Karina Nielsen, Elaina Porcaro and Hailey Wellenstein; from PHS the winners were Stephanie Batten, Megan Becker, Madison Schaefer and Ariana Worcester; from OHS the winners are Alesha Hollatz, Courtney Schlender and Mackenzie Shambeau.

The Scholastic Art Awards -Wisconsin competition and exhibition is the regional section of The Scholastic Art and Writing Awards National Program, conducted by the Alliance for Young Artists and Writers, Inc. On Feb. 2, student artists were awarded 254 individual Gold Keys which forwards them on to the National Scholastic Art Awards Competition, and 139 Silver Keys, which allows for statewide recognition of their work.

"It is a privilege to see the work of these young artists and to be a part of their experience in the Scholastic Art Awards," said Daniel Keegan, director of the Milwaukee Art Museum. "With so much talent, I have no doubt that choosing the winners was hard for our jury, and I look forward to seeing some of these same artists competing again next year."

The Scholastic Art Awards are sponsored by the Milwaukee Art Museum, the Milwaukee Art Museum Docents, the Marc and Karen Flesch Memorial Fund, The Heller Family in memory of their parents, James and Carol Wiensch, Ray and Sue Kehm and an anonymous donor. For more information, visit
