MADISON-NJ  Five graduating art students were selected by their respective high schools to receive scholarships from Rizzo Fine Arts in Chatham.   All five recipients will be continuing their education in the visual arts in the fall.  The scholarship recipients are: Natalie Smith from Chatham; Leah O’Gorman from Madison; Carly Pancer from Millburn; Lorelei Dugan from New Providence; and Antonella Crescimbeni from Summit.

An exhibition of their artwork will continue through June 22nd at Rizzo Fine Arts, 32 Watchung Ave. in Chatham.

Nicholas Rizzo and his wife Brenda created these scholarships in 2006 to celebrate their 25th year in business.  Both began their art careers in high school and feel very strongly about the importance of art education at the high school level.
