VUHS student artist among those lauded by Welch

MONTPELIER — Rep. Peter Welch hosted the 33rd annual Congressional Art Competition for high school students at The Gallery at Vermont College of Fine Arts in Montpelier on May 15.
Greta Suzette Exeter from Vergennes, a student at Vergennes Union High School, received Congressman Welch’s choice award for her piece “Michelle Dockery.”
“I am so impressed by the talent and creativity of these young Vermont artists,” Welch said. “Their work continues Vermont’s storied tradition of artistic excellence and is a reflection of our state’s first-rate art programs.”
This year’s competition featured artwork from 178 Vermont high school students from 39 schools throughout the state. The competition was initiated by former Rep. Jim Jeffords in 1981 as a way to celebrate the artistic talent of the nation. The winning artwork from each congressional district throughout the country is displayed in the U.S. Capitol for one year.
