This year the Community Foundation of West Texas is pleased to announce that the Lubbock Art Association Scholarship has been awarded to Ashley McClellan, a senior at Frenship High School. Ashley was one of eleven applicants for this scholarship that is given to a Lubbock County senior who plans to pursue art education at the post-secondary level.
Founded in 1951, the Lubbock Art Association was a community based visual arts organization that played an active role in promoting the fine arts and art education in the South Plains region until its dissolution in 2003. In furthering the Association’s efforts to strengthen the importance of the fine arts in this region for artists and art lovers, the Lubbock Art Association Scholarship Fund awards are made to talented young artists so they may continue their art education at the post-secondary level.
All the artwork submitted for the scholarship is on display at Tornado Gallery in Lubbock through April 22, 2017.
