Wood River senior uses award wisely

Express Staff Writer

Annually the Ezra Pound Association awards $5,000 to a young person so that he or she may pursue artistic interests. In this same spirit, the recipient is encouraged to share with classmates and community the experience gained via this award.

The Ezra Pound Association, with the help of the Sun Valley Gallery Association, judges work by Blaine County juniors. Each applicant must submit five slides showing his work and a statement on how the $5,000 award money would be used.

Last yearís winner, Barrett Tabler, is a "poster child for this award," said Minette Broschofsky, a member of the Sun Valley Gallery Association. Tabler is the son of Walter and Ann Tabler.

He won the award based on one sculpture, three drawings and a painting. Tabler, a senior at the Wood River High School, spent three weeks last summer at Oregon State University in Corvallis in a "Jump Start" program for high school students who want to get ahead in their college careers.

At the end of the program he won one of three outstanding junior awards, which enables him to attend the program free of charge next summer.

Tabler intends on going to a serious art college, and, eventually, heíd like to become an illustrator. He currently attends the WRHS for three periods, often stays in art class for another period, and takes an art class at CSI through the extension office in Hailey.

Among the teachers he credits are Ralph Harris. "Heís a really amazing artist who Iíve taken two classes from through CSI, and Betty Irvine has really taught me a lot and helped me a lot."

Tablerís advice for juniors entering the contest is: "Do the best you can and work hard. The judges are looking at skill level and what you put into the art work."
