2021 Spigel Award Winner

Each year during the Student Arts Expo a high school senior is chosen to receive the Bernice Spigel Prize which includes a cash award and solo exhibition at the Creative Arts Guild. This year the prize was awarded to Cason Glover, a senior at North Murray High School. Cason says he has been drawing his whole life but did not get serious about it until Middle School.

Cason says “My art is all abstracted from worlds and characters I've created and drawing them as an outlet. My inspirations come from elements of astrology and other aspects of space. I love to use these aspects to explore character design and illustration. I found I enjoy drawing things that are my own creation instead of basing them on a source material. My art achievements include having my art put on a billboard for a mascot contest in Chatsworth, being recognized in the newspaper for a game day poster, winning first place district wide for the Georgia Farm Bureau contest, and getting 1st, 2nd, and 3rd places in art shows held at North Murray High School. In the future, I hope to be going to school to further build upon my skills and ideas. I would like to major in sequential arts, graphic design, or illustration.”
