Apr. 14, 2013 @ 12:00 AM

HUNTINGTON -- Huntington High School sophomore Bobbi Hall recently won best of show at the 2013 Three-Dimensional Youth Art Month Exhibit at Tamarack in Beckley.

Her ceramic sculpture entitled "William the Lemur" was also received first place in the senior division. She is the daughter of Christine Hall, a member of the Barboursville Lions Club. Her winning entry will be on display at the Huntington Museum of Art.

Senior Jordan Keller received honorable mention with her artwork "Grandfather's Hands," in the same division.

Both students and their families were in attendance for the awards reception held March 23.

The annual statewide Youth Art Month exhibit held at Tamarack consists of no more than three juried sculptural artworks per county of West Virginia. Also juried into the exclusive exhibit was Hanna Taylor, a junior at Huntington High, with her sculpture "The One that Got Away."

The two winning entries are now invited to participate in Arts Alive, the annual arts showcase presented by the West Virginia Department of Education, on April 26.
