LIBERTY — Liberty Graphics T-shirts has announced the winner of their 23rd Annual art contest titled "Art and our Natural Environment." This $1,000 scholarship art contest is open to all Maine high school seniors.
Calla Collins, of Unity, took top honors this year with an acrylic painting of freshly picked blueberries and iconic Maine boots.
In the fall Calla will attend College of the Atlantic, with a focus on art.
Calla grew up here in Maine, the daughter of two park rangers. She has been making art since a very young age, and has two uncles who are artists. Calla also has won two awards for poetry, likes to hike nearly every weekend, and enjoys both rock climbing and kayaking.
Liberty Graphics wishes her much success, and hopes this $1,000 prize will help her continue her artistic pursuits.
