Two NLC Art Students are District Finalists for Scholarship

IRVING, TX-- 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.
