Students from all grade levels displayed their artwork in a student art show at the local art gallery on March 2.
The small art gallery on Bridge Street was packed with art lovers, parents, and students to see all of the selected art pieces. The displays included ceramic figures, scratchboard designs, Photoshop designs, and many other different variations of displays.
Artwork was classified by grade level, class, and medium.
“I really liked the array of art the whole show made my day; art is good, very good,” said JD Christinson who came to the show to see his sister Camille Christinson’s art.
Senior Kacy Shearer was awarded the Best in Show prize for her fashion design concept. She also received the Judge’s Choice award.
Junior, Ashlee Lee, received first place for her linocut print.
Sophomore, Dillon Bryan, received the first-place prize for his color pencil display he made in Ms. Kottke’s Art class.
The student art show was a success. There were many prize recipients.
“It’s fantastic,” said Lowry Art teacher, Mrs. Rorex.
Junior High Art teacher, Mrs. Rust, commented that twice as many people came to this year’s art show than last year.
There were around 400 community members that came to the art show to view local student’s art pieces in the first half-hour of the show. Overall, the art show was a great success.
