Because one of our goals is to encourage education in the field of art, each spring the Greater Cincinnati Watercolor Society awards a scholarship to a worthy recipient who is continuing his or her art education. Many high school artists' portfolios were presented to the Scholarship Committee, and the quality of work proved to be outstanding, making the final selection difficult.

This year's recipient is Jenny Shen, from Mason High School, who will study fine art this fall at New York's Columbia School of Art. Her exciting work showed strong versatility in various mediums and subject matter. The committee appreciated the way that Jenny dynamically expressed herself in her paintings, also commenting about the energy and liveliness of the work.

Congratulations, Jenny! We wish you the best in your studies and as an artist.
A few samples of Jenny's work are posted below. Enjoy.
