AUSTINTOWN - Austintown Fitch High School senior Wendy Liu's artwork will be on display as part of the 2017 House of Representatives Student Art Exhibition.
Her work was selected to represent House District 58 and will be on display in Columbus at the Vern Riffe Center for Government and the Arts, where she traveled March 4 to attend an awards ceremony and viewing reception.
Following the ceremony and reception, Liu also was invited to tour the Ohio Statehouse.
"Wendy is self motivated. Anything she does, she applies herself 100 percent," art teacher Adam Laskanic said. "Wendy is constantly practicing her 'craft' and seeking ways to improve her already incredible talent. Her drive, talent and determination in all that she does will surely pay dividends in her future as an artist and as a person."
This marks the second time Liu has been recognized for her artwork this school year. She particiapted in the regional 2017 Scholastic Art Awards program, where artwork is judged on a local and then regional levels, with gold key works moving on to the national level to be judged this month.
There was an awards ceremony earlier at the Ford Theater on the campus of Youngstown State University, where students were recognized. There were 71 gold keys and 146 silver keys in the showing.
"Wendy's artwork was also part of a Scholastic Art gold key portfolio," Laskanic said. "She won a gold key in January for her portfolio."
