MADISON – Julie Davidson of Madison is the winner in Alabama’s 5th District 2015 Congressional Art Competition.

Davidson’s award-winning entry was a charcoal-medium sketch of two young women in formal attire, entitled “Waiting for a Cue.” Davidson is a senior at James Clemens High School. Her art teacher is Liz Vaughn.

Davidson received her award from Congressman Mo Brooks at an awards ceremony at Huntsville Museum of Art on March 15.

Davidson’s artwork will be hung in the U.S. Capitol building, along with winners from congressional districts across the country. The winner of the annual Congressional Art Competition attends a national reception for winners in Washington D.C. later this year.

“I’m so thankful for the support of our community, particularly the Huntsville Museum of Art, and their work to facilitate the Congressional Art Competition each year,” Brooks said. A panel of judges juried 243 pieces of artwork submitted and selected Davidson as the winner.

“It was a pleasure to recognize Ms. Davidson’s achievements. I look forward to seeing her artwork displayed in the U.S. Capitol throughout the next year representing Alabama’s 5th District,” Brooks said.

“Additionally, I was proud to commend the honorable mentions and thank the art educators who empower these students to succeed,” Brooks said.

Local students receiving honorable mentions included Julianna Shrontz, a junior at St. John Paul II Catholic High School. Shrontz worked with printmaking in drypoint engraving to create “The Old West.” Her art teacher is Barbara Laughbaum.

Emily Snell, a senior at Madison Academy, also received honorable mention. She worked in mixed media with foam core board, Bristol paper and glue to design “The Quiet Forest.” Snell’s art teacher is Peggy Hickerson.
