Art Maui 2013 will be awarding three $2,000 college scholarships this Saturday, April 20.

Their High School Senior Art Scholarship Awards Program was open to seniors attending Maui County public or private high schools as well as those being home-schooled on the islands.

Student entries were due April 4, and entrants from five area high schools participated.

Art Maui 2013 Juror Ron Kowalke, Professor Emeritus in Art at UH-Manoa, also juried the student competition. Kowalke previously served as a juror along with Barbara Engle and Hobaica in 1985.

The award winners for this year’s student scholarships won’t be known, however, until Saturday’s Juror’s Walkthrough.

At that time, there will also be a mini-exhibit of the winning artwork submitted in the portfolios of the winning high school seniors. The exhibit will be at the Alexa Higashi Meeting Room next to the Schaefer International Gallery at the Maui Arts & Cultural Center.

The public is invited to the awards announcement and to see the work of the three scholarship winners from 2 to 4 p.m. on Saturday.

Art Maui was started in 1978 and is currently in its 35th year.
The exhibit is open daily from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Schaefer International Gallery at the Maui Arts and Cultural Center for a few more weeks. The final day to take in the free show is on Sunday, May 12.
