ASOG presents scholarships to GHS students and awards to ASOG artists

The Art Society of Old Greenwich (ASOG) presented its 2016 Scholarship Awards to three Greenwich High School students for their outstanding artwork in charcoal, photography and ceramics. The presentations were made on April 9 at the ASOG Spring Art Show reception, which took place at the Garden Education Center, Cos Cob. The ASOG also presented 2016 Spring Show awards to ASOG member artists.

Monica Stevenson received the $500 Grand Prize Scholarship Award for her sensitive charcoal portrait. The $250 Runner-Up (second place) Scholarship awards went to Estella Perrone for her surrealistic photography and to Andreas Zervos for his superb ceramics.  Jurors for the Scholarship Awards were artists Carol Nipomnich Dixon, Frank Smurlo, Jr. and Libby Collins.

Also recognized for excellence were several of the ASOG member artists currently exhibiting their work at the Garden Center. Judge for the show was multi-media artist Joseph Fucigna, who selected award winners in oil, acrylics, watercolor, photography, mixed media and sculpture. Co-Presidents Barbara Stretton and Dan Gravereaux made the presentations.
