“Pink Pull” by Megan Matson of Lynnwood

A young artist from Lynnwood earned an honorable mention in the Congressional Art Competition for the Second Congressional District.

Rep. Rick Larsen (WA-02) held a reception for the student artists who entered the Congressional Art Competition at the Everett Public Library on Saturday. Three judges scored the pieces on their creativity, the execution of the artist’s skill, and the way each piece tells a story or provokes a reaction.

Megan Matson of Lynnwood won an honorable mention for her photo “Pink Pull.”

“Congratulations to the many talented young artists who submitted pieces to the Congressional Art Competition. I saw all of the pieces on display, and I was inspired by their creativity and the stories I heard about how these students made their art. These young artists used their unique perspectives and skills to create interesting and thought-provoking pieces of art,” Larsen said.

“A Walk,” by Ohnshim Kim of Mukilteo took first place in the competition.

Ohnshim Kim of Mukilteo won first place for her charcoal drawing “A Walk.” Kristine White of Everett won second place for her colored pencil drawing titled “Just Jazzy.” Elizabeth Hanks of Bellingham received third place for her painting entitled “Adele.”

Matson was one of two honorable mentions. The other honorable mention was received by Bracken Hibbard of Everett for his photograph entitled “Snow Scene.”
