ART SCHOLARSHIPS PROVIDED TO PUTNAM COUNTY HIGH SCHOOL SENIORS
From 1998 through 2013, the Putnam Arts Council has administered the George Shawe Memorial Visual Art Scholarship in memory of Mr. Shawe, a former Putnam Arts Council Board member, visual artist and educator. The scholarship recognizes artistic excellence to graduating Putnam County High School seniors who are moving forward with their scholastic or vocational efforts in the arts.
This fund required ongoing support to continue disbursements and thanks to a contribution from David & Adi Green (Results Advertising), we were able to award the scholarship in 2012 and 2013.
We are proud to have dispersed funds that encouraged and supported the work of emerging visual artists and note that many continue to contribute their talent and expertise as instructors and exhibitors at the Putnam Arts Council.
