Applications open for art scholarships

| November 22, 2023 12:00 AM

Sandpiper Art Gallery and Gifts in Polson has opened the application period for their art scholarship program.

Each year Sandpiper Gallery offers scholarships to deserving students from Lake and Sanders counties. The nonprofit gallery began over 50 years ago in Polson with a mission to encourage and promote appreciation and participation in the arts. Sandpiper Gallery places emphasis in making art available to people and to promote art as a career. The gallery uses money collected from their art-in-the-park shows for scholarships.

Scholarships are available to students accepted or currently enrolled in college, specialized art schools, and vocational institutions. Applicants must meet criteria of majoring in art forms such as painting, sculpture, fiber art, graphic art, photography and ceramics. Criterion also includes professional careers in education, history of art, restoration, scientific/medical art illustration, art archeology and museum curatorship. 

Students may get applications from three sources: their high school, by email at sandpiperartgallery306@gmail.com, or from the website sandpiperartgalleryandgifts.com.  

Students who have won an award in the past are eligible to reapply.
