The Fulton Art Association is presenting two art scholarships at graduation ceremonies Saturday, June 28 (today) at G. Ray Bodley High School in Fulton.
Each $100 scholarship was bestowed upon a graduating senior who displayed special artistic talent. The winners of the two scholarships, Jack Ryan and Seth Rogers-Miller, were chosen by their teachers, Meredith Gill-Williams and Jackie Tyler, who state:
“Jack Ryan has been active in the art word world displaying art work in district shows throughout Oswego County. Jack is very talented in the ceramics medium but has recently discovered his ability in 2D art. When Jack isn’t creating art, he devotes his time to skiing, skateboarding, rock climbing, and sailing.”
“Seth Rogers-Miller plans to attend RIT in the fall. He is very talented artist that loves art, but is fearful of the long-term investment. He has decided to take art classes in college and stay undeclared until he knows what he wants to do as a career.
Seth is very talented in whatever medium he uses. He inspires his peers with an out-of-the-box way of viewing and creating art. He has had his art work shown in district shows in Oswego County and ha received various art awards.”
Both of the scholarship winners participated in the ceramics category at the 2014 High School Invitational Art and Photography Show held in March and sponsored by the Fulton Art Association, said association President Kathy Mihalek.
Jack is the son of Patrick and Tracey Ryan of Fulton, and Seth is the son of Faith Rogers and William Miller, Jr. of Fulton.
