A Gleneagle secondary art student featured on the front page of The Tri-City News last month has taken the top prize in the Emerging Talent exhibit.

Mieko Graham-Carty clinched gold for her three mixed-media sculptures — Cernuous, Morrighan and Songbird — entered into the annual display, which highlights artwork from Grade 12 students in the Coquitlam school district.

Gleneagle’s Travis Anderson took the silver prize while Pamella Pinard garnered bronze.

The three top artists won art supplies donated by Colours Art Supplies and Framing.

Meanwhile, for the second annual Emerging Talent Film Festival, Johnathan Kang and Trevor Clelland scooped the best film, editing and cinematography awards for their flick Fresh Tracks (Bryan Gregory won best performance in the same movie).

The best original screenplay went to Zakhar Okunev for Ecosystem of a Skatepark while best sound design went to Travis Anderson for Time Lapse. The best director nod was given to Anderson for Time Lapse, and Sam Massooleh and Riley O’Neill for Observations of a Self-Portrait.

Time Lapse also won the audience choice award.
