Patapsco Student Wins Second Congressional District’s Annual Art Contest

By Marge Neal, Dundalk Patch

There are art galleries and then there are art galleries.

Patapsco High School and Center for the Arts junior Amber Triplett has just landed a piece of wall space in one of the grandest art galleries in the land—the U.S. Capitol.

Triplett’s photo-manipulation titled “Self Portrait” was named the first-place winner in U.S. Rep. C.A. Dutch Ruppersberger’s annual Second Congressional District student art contest.

Her work of art bested 35 other entries submitted by high school students from across the district to win the right to hang in the Capitol for the next year. Winning art from all congressional districts across the country will be displayed in the collection.

Patapsco senior Safiya Brown won second place for her oil painting titled “A Random Mood.”

Congratulations to all!
