Original art by the three Northwestern High School seniors competing for this year’s Andrew Kovaleski-Kids In Nebagamon Art Scholarship will be on display at the 2015 KIN and Kovaleski Art Show & Auction. The event runs 1-6 p.m. Saturday at the Lake Nebagamon Auditorium, 11596 Waterfront Drive. The seniors competing for the scholarship are Jordan Orme, Abby Schultz and Lucas Masterson.

This is the inaugural year for the Kovaleski Scholarship and many of the artistic creations of the late Andrew Kovaleski will be on display at the show. Also on display will be artwork by many local artists. Any of the participating artists who wish to sell their creations will be able to show those pieces as well.

Refreshments and light appetizers will be served throughout the show. Artists from throughout the area are invited to participate in the art show and may offer artwork for sale if they wish. Anyone interested in participating in the art show and/or silent auction should contact Brandie Brummer, 612-309-0999 or or Kay Coletta at

Owners of work by local artists may also display their treasures if they wish and are encouraged to stay with those treasures during the show. All artwork should be brought to the auditorium between 11 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. Saturday.
