Asheville High student seeking help with Congressional Art Campaign

Full announcement from Craig Hoge:

Please take a moment to help a young Asheville High student win The Congressional Art Competition.

Cassandra Hoge is the only entrant from Asheville in Rep. Patrick Mchenrys’ District 10. Instead of judging by talent, his office has decided to make it a popularity contest by posting the entries on facebook ; the most “Likes” wins.

We need to generate as many Facebook votes as possible.
The direct link to Cassandra’s art is

Or anyone can go to and click on her painting.

If Cassandra wins she will be representing Asheville by her art hanging in The Cannon Tunnel of The Washington Capitol Building for 1 year. She will also be eligible for a $20,000 scholarship to SCAD.

Cassandras piece is a mixed media done with pastels, oils, charcoal, markers, and nail polish.
It is titled “Centered”
