York students earn art scholarships

ELMHURST – A pair of York High School seniors received $500 scholarships from the Elmhurst Artists' Guild at a recent guild meeting.

Parker Smart won for a self-portrait, executed as a “visual photograph,” and Emily Fry won for her colored pencil work, entitled "Mother and Child." Both were chosen by EAG artists Adrienne Jaroscak and Nick Sgarioto, according to a news release.

Smart plans on attending the University of Iowa to study art.  Her interest in art started around the age of 7, while taking classes at the Elmhurst Art Museum. Her current emphasis is on photography, although she is also taking a watercolor class, the release stated.

Fry plans to attend Southern Illinois University in the fall, majoring in studio art, with a minor in either psychology or education.  She hopes to work in art education or art therapy after college, stated the release.
