On Friday April 1 the Rangeley Friends of the Arts will play host to the RLRS winners of the 2022 Scholastic Art Award Competition and the Congressional Art Awards at the Lakeside Contemporary Art Galley located in the lobby of the RFA Lakeside Theater, 2493 Main St in Rangeley. The award ceremony will begin at 5:30 with a reception to follow.

The Congressional Art Competition takes place each spring, when the Congressional Institute sponsors a nationwide high school visual art competition to recognize and encourage artistic talent in the nation and in each congressional district. Since this competition began in 1982, more than 650,000 high school students have participated.

The Scholastic Art & Writing Awards is the nation’s longest-running and most prestigious recognition initiative for creative teens. Maine’s regional Gold Key, Silver Key, Honorable Mention, and American Visions & Voices Nomination recipients are honored locally through community ceremonies and exhibitions.

Come and join the students, parents, educators, and supporters of our award-winning student artists for the award ceremony and reception.  Enjoy light refreshments and a beer/wine cash bar. The Exhibit continues through May 27, 2022.
