The Miller Art Museum in Sturgeon Bay held a public reception to celebrate the 44th Annual Salon of Door County High School Art and reveal award winners. It was a full house, as parents, students, teachers, relatives, and community members were present to celebrate the accomplished young artists of the area.
The art teachers – Emily Salm (Gibraltar), Klayton Kindt (Sevastopol), George Ouimette (Southern Door), and Nicole Herbst (Sturgeon Bay) – presented Certificates of Participation to all participating student artists. Curator of Exhibitions and Collections Elizabeth Shoshany Anderson presented cash awards; $100 Awards of Excellence went to Gracie Richards (Gibraltar), Violet Suhrer (Sturgeon Bay), Korrina Ervin (Washington Island), Nicholas Stoekel (Sevastopol), and Emma Jeanquart (Southern Door). Honorable Mention Awards of $50 were presented to Sarah Kifer (Gibraltar), Claire Tellstrom (Sturgeon Bay), Alissabeth Mohn (Washington Island), Bailey Henrickson (Sevastopol), and Benjamin Walters (Southern Door).
“This reception is always an incredibly vibrant event,” said Miller Art Museum Director Elizabeth Meissner-Gigstead. “Over 100 students and their families come together to celebrate their artistic accomplishments and the relationships they have formed with their art teachers throughout the years. We are so lucky to be a part of it.”
In addition, a fund constructed in honor of the Door County Art League provided each high school art department with $100 in order to purchase additional art supplies.
