-- Jesus Segovia and Giovanni
Gonzalez, two North Lake College art students, are District finalists
for the Edith Baker Art Scholarship and Artist Career Development Fund
presented by the Dallas Art Dealers Association (DADA).
Edith Baker, a prolific contributor to the Dallas art scene,
owned a highly respected gallery in Dallas until her retirement. The
scholarship in her name will be given to one visual art student
attending one of the Dallas County Community College District colleges:
Brookhaven, Cedar Valley, Eastfield, El Centro, Mountain View, Richland
and North Lake.
A financial award will go to one student to be used toward
covering the expenses of majoring in visual arts in college. The winner
also will have the opportunity to be mentored for a day and have an
internship with a DADA member of his/her choice at his/her business. In
addition, seven finalists will be chosen for exhibition at one of
DADA's member galleries.
The students have interviewed with a team of professionals from
DADA and will exhibit their work at special showing at the McKinney
Avenue Gallery this fall. At that time, the winner of the scholarship
will be announced.
