Congressional Art Competition Winner Honored in Washington
Congressman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) welcomed Jamie Swartz, winner of the Sixth Congressional District of Virginia’s 2016 Congressional Art Competition, to Washington today. Her egg tempera painting, Anthurium Light, will be on display in the Cannon Tunnel of the U.S. Capitol for one year as part of a display of artwork by high school artists from across the nation. Jamie resides in Lynchburg and is the daughter of Jim and Sandy Swartz. She is a 2016 graduate of Heritage High School and plans to attend Lynchburg College in the fall.
Goodlatte: “Congratulations to Jamie Swartz of Lynchburg on this great achievement! The artistic talents of Sixth District students should be celebrated, and I am pleased that Jamie’s painting, Anthurium Light, will be on display for every visitor to see. Thank you to all of the students who participated in this competition. I wish Jamie the best of luck as she heads to Lynchburg College in the fall.”
