From the art submitted to this show, the Phoenix Art Group will select the art to illustrate the 2016 calendar created each year to raise money for scholarship support for a qualified senior from Gloucester County to help continue his/her art studies at the college level. If you are interested in this scholarship support – which is currently $1200 – the scholarship application forms are available at the Guidance Department of Gloucester High School or by contacting the Phoenix Art Group. Our 2015 calendar can still be purchased at Gloucester Arts on Main for an donation of $15 or more to the Phoenix Art Group.
The Phoenix Art Group will also be sponsoring an art show for the Teen Mentoring Program later this year. This is a unique program, administrated by Gloucester Arts on Main, pairing artists with aspiring art students in a one-on-one situation which allows them to rapidly develop a sense of their individuality in society as well as open creative avenues for their expression.
