Two Alta High students have received honors at the prestigious Utah All-State High School Art Show. Violeta Martinez received the coveted Juror’s Award of Best in Show for her 3D work, “Stages of Grief.” Ethan Johnson is a Congressional Award winner with an Honorable Mention by U.S. Representative Burgess Owens for his piece titled, “Black and White.” Now in its 49th year, the All-State Art Show was established by the Springville Museum of Art to honor the best high school artists in the state for their talent, creativity, and dedication. The highly competitive exhibition features entries from high school juniors and seniors throughout Utah. This year, 892 works from 104 schools were entered. Of those, 325 were selected for display in the exhibition. The pandemic presented a challenge to the traditional exhibition process, which led to the show’s first ever digital submission and online jurying system. Works were judged on technical quality and conceptual design by a panel of art professionals. Those works selected for Juror Awards represent the most skillfully executed and original pieces submitted. Congressional Awards are intended to represent life throughout Utah and demonstrate the quality of work done across the state. These awards are chosen by Utah’s Congressional representatives.
