Selected works will be on display in the Westport Arts Center’s Project Space from March 18 – April 23, an announcement said.

The competition is open to all students who reside and/or attend high school in Westport. There is no specific theme or subject matter for the exhibition, allowing students to submit the work of their choice.

The juror for the exhibition is Ann Chernow, a Westport artist who is known for her portrait-style illustrations that evoke the images of female cinematic figures of the 1930s and 1940s. Her exhibition, “NOIR,” will be on display at the Westport Arts Center from March 18 – April 23.

Retired senior U.S. District Court Judge Alan Nevas and his wife Janet are sponsors of the competition in memory of the late Tracy Sugarman, illustrator, writer, civil rights activist and World War II veteran who died in January 2013 at age 91.

Submitted artwork must meet the following guidelines: each student can submit one work of art; artwork must have been completed after Jan.1, 2015; work must be two-dimensional—sculptures, films and three-dimensional works will not be accepted.

Also, work including frame may not exceed in 24 inches any direction; works must be ready to hang; works on paper must be framed and wired; artists have the option to submit an artist statement and a brief description of submitted works.

An entry fee of $10 must be submitted with each entry. Entries are due by March 12 and selected artists will be notified on March 16.

Complete entry and exhibition details are available at www.westportartscenter.org or by calling (203)222-7070.
