GHS Seniors bring home big awards from KY Art Show
Seniors, Caitlyn Richey, Kylie Watson and Kara White represented Georgetown well at Maysville Community and Technical College High School Visual Art Competition in Kentucky. A reception was held on November 21st and announced awards for students. Caitlyn Richey won 3rd place in the 2D Mixed Media category for her crayon-spattered puzzle. Kara White brought home two awards from the competition. She is pictured with her hanging origami installation titled, "The Folds of Conformity," in which she won first place in the sculpture category. Also, White was recognized for her 3D Mixed Media flower named "Unorthodox Beauty," for which she won a third place award.
Students were judged against 110 other artworks from various local high schools. "It is the most competitive art show in the area right now for our high school students," says Mr. Wallace. "We are going up against much bigger county schools from Kentucky. I always have an idea of how I think my students may do but art is so subjective you never know for certain. It is just nice to see students recognized and rewarded for all the time, hard work and planning they pour into their art."
So what did students gain from the experience? White responded with this statement: "Participating in this art competition has been very enlightening. It's great to see artwork from fellow students and know that we all put time and effort into our pieces.
The student art exhibit has been on display for a couple weeks and will remain on display through December 6th at Maysville Community and Technical College.
