Eva KelseyThe 37th Storrs All High Art Show at the Kenan Center Gallery in Lockport featured work by students from 28 high schools from across Western New York. Eva Kelsey was awarded Best Use of Color with her colored pencil drawing, Octopus (pictured at far right). “I wanted to challenge myself to add more texture and detail to my drawings, so I thought an octopus would be perfect,” explained Kelsey. “They are one of my favorite sea creatures.” 

Kylie Lemise received the Merit Award for her scratch art, A Real Life Dragon (pictured at right). Lemise stated, “I was in my science class petting the class lizard named Mr. Kipling, and was inspired by his scales and just the way they felt and looked and drew this piece. I’ve always loved dragons. I just never thought I would get to see a real one.”
