Senator Reed announced the winners of his 2019 High School Arts Competition. Cosponsored by the RI Art Education Association (RIAEA), the contest features artwork from students hailing from 23 high schools across the state.
This year’s winners were chosen by a panel of expert judges that included: David DePetrillo of the Providence Art Club; Marta Martínez of the RI Latino Arts Association; and Judy Salvadore of the Wickford Art Association.
Domingo Pablo Gutierrez, a senior from Mount Pleasant High School, won this year’s top prize with his work “Still Life,” completed with graphite and colored pencil. His work will be displayed in Senator Reed’s Washington, D.C. office for the next year.
Emma Naughton, a Lincoln High School senior, and Alaina Minarik, a North Kingstown High School sophomore, earned second and third place, respectively.
