Artwork in the Plantation Wildlife Festival Junior Art Contest had to be based on the “Game Birds in Flight” theme. A maximum of 50 entries, from grades 7-12 were accepted for exhibition. TCCHS had eight works selected this year. The overall “Best of Show” winner was Central’s Sophomore Sophie Anderson for her “Wild Pheasant” in watercolor, ink, and acrylic. Sophie received a $1,000 scholarship toward a one-week summer intensive art camp at the Savannah College of Art and Design. In addition, our high school art program received $500 for having the “Best in Show” winner. First Place for the 11th to 12th grade division went to TCCHS Senior Lyndsae Madden, for her “Band-Tailed Pigeons” in ink and watercolor pencil. As part of the Plantation Wildlife Arts Festival, the works will be on display at the Thomasville Center for the Arts main floor gallery. The annual contest is sponsored by the Thomasville Center for the Arts and Flowers Foods.
