Since 2005, Tyler Museum of Art (TMA) has held a juried competition for senior-level art students throughout the region. This gives the students their first opportunity for a full museum exhibition.

This year the museum has works by 75 students from 13 high schools and eight counties. Four outstanding works were selected by the jurors, including an overall Best in Show, as well as three Honorable Mentions. Guests are invited to stop by and place a vote for the Viewer’s Choice Award.

Winning Best of Show is Alex Rodriguez of Sulphur Springs with “Class of 2020.” (above)

Honorable Mentions include (slide show) Gage Moncrief of Tyler for “Intertwined,” Leslie Elizondo of Sulphur Springs with “Untitled,” and Shelby Phillips, Tyler, “Eyes of the World.”

The show began at the end of March and runs through May 16. TMA is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from 1-5 p.m.
