Four MCC-Penn Valley students have been awarded Friends of the Carter Art Center Scholarships by the MCC Foundation.

The $300 scholarships were presented April 8 at the Student Art Exhibit and Sale at Carter Art Center. The scholarship recipients and the pieces they were honored for:

+ Patricia Angel for “Longview Lake Sunrise”

+ Sally L. McInerney for “Going the Wrong Way”

+ Gloria Yaqi Wang for “L.O.V.E.”

+ Rachele Williams  for “Hanging”

The show and sale, featuring 179 original pieces of student artwork, opened April 1 and ran through April 16. Seventy-five percent of sale proceeds went to the artists, with the remaining 25 percent going to future Carter Art scholarships.

Kansas City artist Marcus Cain judged the student pieces.
