The Rotary Club of Los Altos’ Young at Art contest recognizes budding student artists from seven local high schools as part of the annual Fine Art in the Park event.
A jury of Rotarians selected 15 winning works, including first- and second-place submissions from students at each school. Rotary Club officials will present the winning artists with awards and stipends for college expenses – $150 to first-place winners and $100 to second-place winners – at Fine Art in the Park, scheduled 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. May 20 and 21 at Lincoln Park in Los Altos.
The winning works will be on display through May 18 at three Los Altos venues: Nature Gallery, 296 State St.; Boston Private Bank, 345 S. San Antonio Road; and Bank of the West, 176 Main St.
Nature Gallery is slated to host an exhibition of all 15 works as well as a public reception for the artists, their teachers and their parents 5-7 p.m. May 15. During Fine Art in the Park, all winning works will be on display in the Lincoln Park gazebo.
