"Local Student Artists Split $1,000 in Prize Money"
MAY 1,2018 -- Over fifty local Hollister and Branson High school students received awards in the 27th Annual Adelynne Valett Art Competition for a total of $1,000 in prize money.
On Tuesday, May 1st, sponsored by the Friends of the Library and Branson Regional Art Council, the Taneyhills Library hosted the Adelynne Valett Art Competition. This annual competition attracted the attention of local art students in categories including paintings of various mediums, mixed media, photography, ceramics and sculpture. This student competition was judged by retired art teachers Kelly Wrenn and John Swaffar, and local artist Mark Lee. After much consideration, the Friends of the Library and Branson Regional Arts Council awarded Katt McManus “Best of Show” for the brightly colored painting of her brother’s dog titled “Len Dog.” The competition judges voted on their favorite as well and selected the extremely detailed watercolor by Nat Cole titled “Boat #1.”
