Young Artist Showcase


Stillwater Community Arts is excited to present The Young Artist Showcase, the culmination of an audition process where high school visual, performing, literary, and multi-media artists performed/displayed their work for a jury of experts in the field.  From this audition Stillwater Community Arts chose seven talented Young Artists from the Orono-Old Town area to be featured in the Young Artist Showcase on Sunday, May 6, at 7:30 p.m. at Minsky Recital Hall on the University of Maine campus.  This year’s winners are:

Tim Bruce, Orono High School, photography
Kate Fergusson, Orono High School, saxophone
Erin Norris, John Bapst High School, dance
Nathan Reeves, Old Town High School, composition
Hanna Renedo, Orono High School, violin
Natalie Smith, Orono High School, clarinet
Rowan Wilson, Orono High School, flute

Each Young Artist will perform or display two pieces and talk about what has inspired their art.  The Young Artist Showcase will conclude with each Young Artist receiving a scholarship towards their arts education from the following generous sponsors: Griffin and Jordan, LaBree’s Bakery, MacDonald, Chase, & Dufour,  Noonan Chiropractic,  The Rock Team, The Store/Ampersand,  and Veazie Veterinary Clinic.  The Young Artist Showcase is free and open to the public and is a fantastic way to support the arts and the budding talent in our community.    The Young Artist Showcase is co-sponsored by the School of Performing Arts.
