(wvia) - WVIA spotlights performing and visual student artists from throughout northeast and central Pennsylvania during the Artist Celebration on Saturday, April 6, 2013 from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. at the WVIA Studios in Pittston, PA. This event is free and open to the public.

The WVIA PNC Studio will be set-up as an exhibit hall that will showcase artwork from students who entered the Congressional Arts Competition and from our top visual artists in WVIA's Artist of the Week program.

Then at 1:30 top student musicians will perform in the Sordoni High Definition Theater. The concert will be recorded for later broadcast on WVIA FM.

After the concert, WVIA will announce the Artists of the Year in both the performing and visual categories. Also, the Congressional Arts Competition winners for each of the 3 congressional districts will be revealed.

WVIA's Artist of the Week and Artist of the Year educational programs are sponsored by NEIU 19 and the Pennsylvania College of Technology. The 2012-13 Artist of the Week video features can be viewed at http://on-demand.wvia.org/program/artist-week/.

Initiated by Members of the U.S. House of Representatives in 1982, the Congressional Arts Competition is a nationwide annual art competition that allows high school students from the fifty states, the District of Columbia, and territories to showcase their artistic ability. WVIA is proud to host the qualification for Congressmen Matt Cartwright, Lou Barletta and Tom Marino for the 17th, 10th and 11th Congressional Districts. The First Place student from each district and his/her immediate family will travel to Washington, DC for the Artistic Discovery Exhibition Opening, where they will have their artwork displayed for one year in our nation's Capitol building.
