Senior Art Show Stuns at Opening Night

On Wednesday, April 17, surrounded by tornado sirens, torrential rain, and flickering lights, friends and family of fine arts seniors were treated to a night of laughter, appetizers, and most importantly–a carefully-curated art show created and organized by both the Senior Class and the Art Department.

Several subjects included in the art displays varied from an entire section dedicated to dinosaur and dragon sculptures by Dorian B.,impressionist paintings of various landscapes by Ellen H. and Angela H., digital portraits by Amanda B. and Faith D., an abstract ceramic sculpture by Justin A., and a gorgeous collection of vases and bowls with crystalline glazes by Camille H., and a collaborative animation series created by the graphic design classes. There truly was something for everyone to enjoy, no matter their taste.

Despite the gloomy weather, the spirits were high in the gallery space and open studio, managing to make even a tornado lockdown feel like another way to appreciate the art pieces featured in the hallways of Morris Hall. Though the weather confined gallery-goers to the stairwell for half an hour, the party continued, spilling out to continue admiring the photography and 2D student’s hard work.

Some seniors chose to display work from beyond their time in the upper school, with pieces dating back to their lower school years standing proudly beside their contemporary pieces, which created a powerful progression in their skills during their times spent in the many art rooms.

The Senior Art Show will be on display until the end of the year, giving those who missed the opening an opportunity to see the culmination of years of work by Academy’s fine arts students.
