According to Carol Crump of the Women's Club of Caldwell, which sponsors the event annually, more than 60 entries were submitted and exhibited at a display on Bloomfield Ave. in Caldwell during the Art on the Avenue show. The winning student artwork was selected by professional artists Ann Taylor, Diane Fischer and Sharon Pitts.

“There are very few opportunities that students artwork will be actually hung in kind of a professional art show,” said Crump, who is also an art teacher. “This a nice opportunity for students to have their artwork seen alongside professional artists.”

On May 21 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Art on the Avenue creations were displayed along Bloomfield Ave. in Caldwell and judged on originality. Pictures included images of people dressed for spring, spring activities, spring flowers, flowering trees, etc., and were grouped for judging.

The Women’s Club of Caldwell resurrected the Student Art Contest in 2012 after it was inactive for nearly a decade. All artwork that was submitted was exhibited alongside professional artists water colorist, pastel artists, oil painters, acrylic painters and art crafters.

All students entered in the contest will receive a certificate of participation. The contest was sponsored and organized by the Women’s Club of Caldwell. Students in grades Kindergarten through 12th were invited to submit a piece of artwork representing the theme “Springtime.”

Parents interested in learning about next year’s Art on Avenue Student Art Contest can send an email to WCofCaldwell@aol.com with the words “Student Art Contest” in the subject line.
