The 47th Annual Jade N. Riedel Scholarship Competition
The Naples Art Association produces and directs the annual Jade N. Riedel Scholarship Program which is open to juniors and seniors attending Collier County High Schools. Scholarships for art classes at the college level are awarded by the Naples Art Association and The Ringling College of Art + Design.
The scholarship program began in 1971 when the Naples Art Association made a promise to encourage aspiring young artists to pursue their dreams and continue their art education at the college level. In 1997, the program was renamed in honor of Jade N. Riedel who served as the program chairperson and was its chief fundraiser for many years. Jade Riedel was an exceptional artist and a Naples Art Association instructor. The exhibition will be on view in the Elizabeth & William Barrick, Millicent & Charles Marshall and the Minnesota Lobby Galleries.
Reception for three exhibitions Friday, April 6, 2018 from 5:30 to 7:30 pm. Galleries are open with free admission during published exhibition dates. Hours are 10 am to 4 pm Monday through Saturday. There is a $10 suggested donation when attending the reception (free for Naples Art Association contributors). Reception generously sponsored by Sage Events and Grace Lake Florist.
