COSHOCTON -- Congratulations to the award winners in Teen-Age Talent, an annual special exhibit at the Johnson-Humrickhouse Museum. Participating high schools included Coshocton, Coshocton Christian, and Ridgewood, as well as the Opportunity School and homeschool. High school art teachers selected more than 100 works of art by 49 students for the exhibit.

Students placed each of their submissions in one of the following categories. Fine Art (2-D), 3-Dimensional Fine Art, Graphic Art (Works meant to inform or entertain), and Photography. Each category was judged for Composition, Technique (craftsmanship or effective use of medium), and Originality.

Judges for the exhibit were Kelsey Schott and Jenn Bush. The judges were impressed with the quality of the works stating that the students and art instructors should be congratulated for this exceptional show.
