Arts council announces peony poster contest winners

As part of Homer’s innaugural Homer Peony Celebration taking place July 10-25, the Homer Council on the Arts sponsored a youth poster contest. Young artists were invited to submit posters on the theme “Homer, City of Peonies.”

The contest winners are:

• Kindergarten-grade 2: Sei Beams, kindergarten

• Grades 3-4: Morgan Harness, 4th grade

• Grade 5-6: Catherine Davis, 5th grade

• Grades 7-9: Kayla St. Clair, 7th grade

There were no entries for the grade 10-12 category.

The winners will have their works duplicated and displayed throughout Homer during the peony celebration. Each winner receives a prize courtesy of Homer Saw & Cycle, as well as a complimentary peony window decal take-home project. Additional peony decal projects can be purchased from the Homer Council on the Arts for $14 cash/check or $16 online at www.homerart.org.

Judging the contest were Linda Vizenor, a Soldotna-based stained glass artist featured in the current Homer Council on the Arts gallery exhibit, “Crystal Reflections,” throughout July; Desiree Hagen, a paper and textile artist who will create an installation (with Kayla Spaan) at the council’s gallery in August; and Suzanne Singer Alvarez, who leads tours for Alaska Perfect Peony in Fritz Creek.
