1st Art Gallery Art & Design Scholarship

Now Accepting Applications for the 6th Art & Design Scholarship

Meet This Year’s Winner

Michaela Gooch

Michaela Gooch is majoring Natural Resources at Oregon State University. She is super passionate about plant and animal conservation and enjoys spending a lot of time outdoors. This allows her to study textures, colors and lines which she transforms into her unique abstract art. Oftentimes, she also blends the human body with the textures, colors and lines she studies in nature. Due to the challenging issues the planet is facing like climate change, deforestation, plastic pollution and more, she decided to create a piece all about balance. Her winning piece is meant to represent the balance between nature and humanity that can be acquired through the radiant, nurturing and gentle nature of femininity. continues its $1000 annual scholarship for new, current, and returning students!
