Liberty Graphics, Printers of Maine's finest T-shirts, has announced the winner of their 16th annual "Art and Our Natural Environment" contest for Maine high school seniors. A water-colored linoleum block print by Nicole Dearing earned the $1,000 prize. She also submitted several other notable pieces. Nicole makes great use of bright color and captures texture well. She will be a fine arts major at Kansas State University in the fall.
Liberty Graphics offers a scholarship annually to encourage Maine students to continue in their artistic endeavors. The contest is open to all high school seniors who are residents of Maine. The scholarship is worth $1,000.
