The Mountain Artists Guild (MAG) awarded its 2014 art scholarships to five local students May 23 at a reception held in conjunction with MAG's monthly membership meeting. Each student received $1,500 to further their education in art-related fields.
The recipients included Lauren Stock, University of Arizona; Jessica Erickson, Prescott High School; Kyli Skinner, Prescott High School; Devon Cleland, Prescott High School; and Joanna Franks, Yavapai College.
Mountain Artists Guild is a local nonprofit founded in 1949 providing art events for the community and visitors. Money funding the scholarships was raised last year at the eighth annual holiday auction of art donated by MAG members and non-members, and various items donated by generous local businesses.
Mountain Artists Guild and Gallery is located at 228 N. Alarcon St. in Prescott. For more information, call 445-2510 or visit www.mountainartists
