The Miller Art Museum (MAM) revealed the award winners of the 41st Annual Salon of Door County High School Art during a public reception April 20. It was a packed house as students, parents, relatives and the community were present for the awards presentation.

“We are thrilled to host this much-anticipated annual event and proud to showcase and share their talent for the public to enjoy,” said Elizabeth Meissner-Gigstead, MAM executive director. “We had a wonderful celebration; the museum was filled with so much positive energy and excitement.”

The art teachers presented Certificates of Participation to all participating student artists. Curator of Exhibits and Collections Deborah Rosenthal presented cash awards: $100 Awards of Excellence went to Calla Norris (Gibraltar), Maggie Behme (Sevastopol); Carley Kolstad (Southern Door); Abby Thiede (Sturgeon Bay); and Lydia Schultz (Washington Island). Honorable Mention Awards of $50 each were presented to Paola Morales (Gibraltar); Adaline Nelson (Sevastopol); Rebecca Malcore (Southern Door); Paige Kramer (Sturgeon Bay); and Miryam Gregg (Washington Island).

In addition, the Door County Art League generously provided each high school art department $100 towards the purchase of supplies for the classroom.
