10-Year Celebration for Weston Scholarship Exhibition and Awards Ceremony
Exhibition May 1- May 31, 2013
Weston Scholarship (WS) is a non-profit organization established by Gina and Kim Weston in 2004 to support high school and college students studying fine art photography in Monterey County; specifically the conventional analogue processes (wet darkroom).
WS hosts an annual portfolio competition for students across the Monterey County including Carmel High School, Monterey High, Pacific Grove High, Santa Catalina, Seaside High, Stevenson Upper School, Hartnell College and Monterey Peninsula College. Students create a portfolio of 10 photographs based on a central theme in a professional presentation that is professionally judged through WS. The competition culminates in an annual exhibition and awards ceremony at Sunset Center.
WS celebrates the roots of photographic history in our region and keeps a tradition alive that was established by Edward Weston and Ansel Adams. Kim Weston is a third generation fine art photographer working in Monterey County with the same sensitivity and dedication to excellence as his grandfather Edward, his uncle Brett, and father Cole.
WS provides ongoing support during the year to teachers and students with classroom presentations, mentorship, and tours of Wildcat Hill – the renowned home and studio of Edward Weston; and donations of photographic supplies to schools in need with co-sponsor Freestyle Photographic Supplies.
The Student Fine Print Program will be on display at the event featuring limited edition photographs created by Angelica Bongioanni, Cody Edison, and Marketa Zlatuskova under the mentorship of Kim Weston. These past scholarship winners have made these photographs for WS fundraising with all proceeds supporting future scholarship award.
This exhibition is co-sponsored by the Arts Council of Monterey County.
