Three All Saints Episcopal School students were recognized in an art competition put on by Cleomentary Inc., a company that sells artist-inspired apparel and merchandise aimed at eradicating poverty, homelessness and income inequality.

The All Saint winners are: Amy Park, 2014 graduate, first place for “Merry Go Round,” Meah Lin, junior, second place for “Butterfly and Flowers,” and Callie Crozier, senior, honorable mention.

“We were blown away by the level of talent that was on display from artists all around,” Cleomentary Founder and CEO Kevin Kimbrough said, according to the news release.

The company will use the winning artwork on company merchandise and part of the proceeds will be given to key charitable organizations.

Participants were required to submit art that emphasized the company’s key focus areas of food, health care, education and housing, according to a company news release.

A panel of award-winning artists and art experts selected the winning pieces. The artists were: artist Ellen C. Brown of Southern California; Lauren Smart, a freelance writer for the Dallas Observer; Katherine “Katz” Lee Finch, an Indianapolis native who owns her own photography company; and Adam A. Anderson, an actor, graphic designer and photographer who works as a graphic designer for the Dallas Symphony Orchestra.
