PORT ANGELES — Peninsula College’s Art and Multimedia departments have announced the winners of the Olympic Peninsula High School Student Art Exhibition.

The juried competition was open to high school students living on the Olympic Peninsula who make 2D or 3D art.

The exhibit of the 93 entries, originally scheduled for April in the PUB Gallery of Art, was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We wanted to find a way to move forward during the pandemic and acknowledge the artistic accomplishments of high school art programs and their students,” PC Art Professor Michael Paul Miller said. “During this time of social distancing the arts can play a big role in bringing beauty, comfort and inspiration to others.”
