An Exhibition of Merit Scholarship Recipients of 2016

by LINEA STAFF | July 1, 2017

Test

Every spring, at the completion of the student concours, the Art Students League begins a week-long series of judged competitions. Students can compete for around a dozen major grants that offer cash awards and for smaller merit awards that cover tuition for one full-time class. Merit awards are broken down into three stylistic categories: realism, abstraction, and semi-abstract/semi-objective. Here is a selection of work by the merit award recipients of 2016 now on view in the Art Students League’s Phyllis Harriman Mason Gallery[1] through July 11, 2017.
