WINNER SUCCESS STORY!
Kassidy Penso was
awarded one of the BAS scholarships for Liberty High School a few years
back. Kassidy is just completing her Senior year of college,
majoring in art, and recently had a showing in Las Vegas.
To the right are a few photos of Kassidy’s paintings. The large
canvas is her most recent one which was commissioned for her first public piece.
Included is a photo of her completing it and one standing with her aunt and uncle who are big supporters of the downtown
Las Vegas art district and arranged the opportunity for her. Her
parents were able to buy that piece from the organizers to help support future artists and
will get to hang it in their house. The other two pieces are those she did
in college. There are SO many. It was hard to choose.
As you can tell, her Mother, Kate, was gushing with pride.
She is so grateful that the Brentwood Art Society supported her
daughter from the beginning.
