Congratulations to sophomore Yufei Jin who earned a Gold Key Award in the CT Regional Scholastic Art Awards competition for her acrylic painting "Falling Leaves". Her artwork was chosen from among 3,000 student entries from all over Connecticut.

Yufei’s painting was exhibited during the 2020 Connecticut Scholastic Art Awards Show at the Silpe Gallery, Hartford Art School on the University of Hartford campus. 

“The eyes can see through the hole in the wall to see the real world,” the North Stonington resident said of the concept for her painting.

She began with the hole in the canvas and the idea blossomed from there, Yufei explained.

Congratulations to this young artist on receiving such a high honor!
