The Margumite and William Zorach Scholarship has been awarded by the Maine Committee for the Skowhegan School since 1909. Bernard "'Blackie" Langlais was a student at Skowhegan as well as a visiting lecturer. He received the Maine Committee's Distinguished Artist Award in 1975, shortly before his death. In 1979, a second Maine scholarship was established in his name. Started in 1946 by Willard Cummings with several artist friends and located on the Cummings family farm outside Skew- began, the school was designed to help young painters and sculptors make the transition from student to professional artist. Now directed by Sidney Simon, one of the original founders, the school is staffed by six resident contemporary artists chosen annually, Among the six visiting lecturers this summer will be nationally acclaimed Katherine Portm from Lincolnville and New Yorker Rob- ert MotherwelI. The school has gained an international reputation unachievable by most institutions which operate only on a summer basis.
