WHS student wins; art will hang in Rep. Allred’s office
A still life painting by Wylie High School student Zachary Martinez won the District 32 Congressional Art Competition and will hang in the office of U.S. Rep. Colin Allred in Washington, D.C.
Winners of the competition were announced in early May at a reception held at The Art Institute of Dallas.
Martinez’ submission was entitled “Still Life in Bleach.”
“Thanks to all of the students who submitted artwork for the competition,” Allred said. “I can’t wait to see what you do with your artistic talents and look forward to next year’s competition.”
Selected as honorable mention were works by Coco Ezebuogo-Okonkwo of Lakeview Centennial High School, Elsa Zhang of Highland Park High School, Phoebe Heng of Garland High School and Alejandro Reyes-Banda of J.J. Pearce High School.
