WSA Senior Zoe Weintraub Awarded Art Scholarship & Spot as Featured Artist at Front Street Gallery

Front Street Gallery has announced West Sound Academy senior Zoe Weintraub as the winner of the 2012 Slug Hunt and Auction Scholarship.    Weintraub plans to use the $1,500 award towards her studies in the Patisserie program at Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts in Portland, Oregon.  Her art work will be on display at the downtown Poulsbo gallery from April 9th through May 7th as the featured artist.  An opening reception is planned for Saturday, April 14th, from 5 to 8 p.m. as part of the Poulsbo Second Saturday Art Walk.

Front Street Gallery started the Slug Hunt and Auction three years ago in Kingston and it has quickly grown to become a popular North Kitsap event. This year there will be over 300 clay slugs available at the end of April for artists and students to decorate for the hunt and auction. Poulsbo galleries and shops will sponsor and display auction slugs and proceeds from the auction will go to fund the scholarship. The scholarship is open to all high school art students in North Kitsap planning on attending college.  Applicants are not required to have art as their major course of study.
