Syracuse, NY (PRWEB) August 30, 2009
Green & Seifter Attorneys, PLLC is excited to announce the "Impressions of Syracuse" Photography Contest for Onondaga County High School Students in grades 9 through 12. Inspired by the upcoming "Turner to Cézanne" exhibit at the Everson Museum of Art, young artists will have the opportunity to express their impressions of the beauty and unique character of our city or region through photography.
The contest is open to all Onondaga County high school students in grade 9 through 12. Entries will be judged on composition, creativity, and effectiveness in conveying the beauty and/or unique character of our region. The deadline for entries is October 16, 2009. The selection of the top twenty finalists and grand prize winner will be made by a panel of artists, teachers, and photographers. The winner will receive a $500 scholarship and have his/her photo featured on the 2009 Green & Seifter Attorney holiday card. A special section will highlight the young artist. In addition, a $500 donation will be made to the winning school's visual arts department to be used for further art education.
The top twenty finalists will have their artwork on display in a special week- long exhibit at the Redhouse Gallery. The winner will be announced during a private reception for finalists, their families and teachers on October 29.
"Green & Seifter Attorneys has been a long-time supporter of the Everson Museum and the Redhouse and values their contributions to our community," said Larry Bousquet, a Managing Member of the firm, "Sponsoring a scholarship to students in the community to promote art education was the logical next step. We hope to help spread the word about these outstanding art institutions that are right here in our backyards."
