In late January of this year, the Portland Metro Scholastic Art Awards announced the list of area artists who won silver and gold keys, several of whom came from LHS.

Seniors can also submit portfolios consisting of eight pieces that all follow a specific theme, the artists’ concentrations. LHS Seniors Bridget Delaney, Noah Meihoff, Kate Kamerman, Kelly Mandel and Alexx O’Boyle are among the students who were awarded gold keys for their portfolios.

Besides earning awards for portfolios, many students from schools throughout the region received an American Visions Nominee honor for the art they submitted into the competition. Among these 4,500 nominees, five of them will proceed to a national competition to represent the region.

Delaney, who earned six Gold Keys and one Silver Key in Drawing and Illustration and an Honorable Mention in Photography, is among the five students in the region moving on to the national contest.

“I was so proud and honored to be chosen as one of five pieces from 4,500,” Delaney said. “I never thought it would go that far.”

Her hard work and dedication certainly paid off, as her passion for art clearly showed through the high level of attention to detail in her piece “Decaf with a Straw,” a hyperrealism illustration drawn in graphite.

This year, students in the LHS art department earned a total of 84 awards, nearly doubling that of the number of awards won by LOHS students.

After the winners were announced, the students’ awarded works were put on display in various locations throughout Portland.

Winners who received Gold Keys are automatically in the running for scholarships and will be eligible to compete in a national competition.
