Six local high school seniors won art scholarships totaling $3,000 from the Davis Art Center’s Gerald R. Wooliever Scholarship Fund for 2012.

The scholarships were presented at a reception on March 30 at the Davis Art Center to: Luke Bowlus, first place, $1,200; Elizabeth Kubey, second place, $900; Catia Romero, third place, $600; and Maddie Roblee, Layla Kutternig and Nate Tiangco, honorable mentions, $100.

The recipients were selected by local artists Rebecca Ryland and Stacey Vetter based on the students’ body of work, on display in the Tsao Gallery at DAC until Tuesday, April 17.

Named for the late Jerry Wooliever, a former DAC board member and mentor to young artists, the scholarships are given to graduating high school seniors to support their ongoing art education.

More than 50 seniors from Davis public high schools have been awarded the Wooliever scholarship since its inception in the mid-90s. The scholarship fund is supported by the generous donations by artists to the Wall-of-Art silent auction, which is held during DAC’s annual Holiday Sale.

To make a monetary donation to the scholarship, visit www.davisartcenter.org and click on “Donate Online.” Or mail a check payable to “Davis Art Center” to c/o Wooliever Scholarship, P.O. Box 4340, Davis, CA 95617.
