Xu ’23 Wins Gold Key Scholastic Art & Writing Award
Sunny Xu ’23 recently won a Gold Key Scholastic Art & Writing Award presented by the Alliance for Young Artists & Writers.
“I feel very honored and excited to be awarded a Gold Key because I never thought of getting such prizes,” said Xu. “When drawing, I feel energized, and after completing it, I feed a sense of accomplishment.”
Xu expresses herself creatively on campus in Art & Design classes, the Silk Screening January Term course, and by leading a digital art club.
Xu’s submission, “The Dancer in Fire,” was among 420 in the Southwest Region of Virginia coordinated by the Fine Arts Center for the New River Valley. An exhibit of the winners will be on display in the Edna B. Love Gallery at the Fine Arts Center starting Jan. 18.
According to their website, the Alliance’s “mission is to identify students with exceptional artistic and literary talent and present their remarkable work to the world through the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards.”
