About the Art Show

About the Art Show

The Southwest Washington Regional High School Art Show is hosted by Educational Service District 112 (ESD 112) in Vancouver. Typically, student artwork entries are delivered to ESD 112 and hung in a gallery that is open for public viewing for several weeks. This year, however, in order to promote safety in our community and to comply with local and statewide social distancing guidelines, the ESD 112 Art Show will take place entirely online.

Also new this year is that all artwork will be submitted via a Google Form instead of the state’s Education Data System (EDS). Students will be required to photograph their artwork in order to submit it for judging. Guidelines for taking great photos of artwork are included in 2021 Virtual Art Show Teacher Guidelines. Photos of artwork will be used for judging and scholarship consideration, as well as for Art Show promotional materials.

The Virtual Awards Ceremony is the culmination of the regional Art Show and is open to viewing by anyone. We are still working out details of what the March 31 Virtual Art Show event will look like but will post more information before the event.

After the Awards Ceremony, winners of the regional awards will advance to the state art show. OSPI will be judging artwork using the artwork photography submitted by the student. No artwork is to be delivered to the ESD 112 office, unless it is selected for an OSPI award after advancing on from the Regional Art Show. Students who need to deliver their artworks to the ESD will be notified individually.

In 2020, thirteen pieces received Regional Awards to compete against entries from around Washington State in the Annual State Superintendent of Public Instruction’s Art Show in Olympia. One of those pieces went on to receive an award at the state level.
