Cami Haber of Pinewood School created “Super Nova,” a digital collage. Haber’s piece will be among this year’s group of Young at Art winners on display at the Rotary Club’s Fine Art in the Park, May 20 and 21 at Lincoln Park in Los Altos.

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.
