Annual Romano Gallery Exhibition Showcases Student Artistry

Posted: April 26, 2017

In the final Romano Gallery showcase of the school year, Blair’s fine artists will share with the community all they have learned and created since the fall. From April 27 to May 23, original student works ranging from photography and film, to paintings and drawings, to graphic design, 3D pieces and more will be on display in the Gallery. An artists’ reception was held Thursday, April 27, at 7 p.m., giving students the opportunity to share and discuss their work with their peers, teachers and the larger community.

The annual student art exhibition is a much-anticipated event, noted Fine Arts Department Chair Kate Sykes, as it highlights the varied work of Blair’s artists, from those just dabbling in fine arts for the first time to those who have taken, and excelled in, many of the School’s course offerings.

“Blair's artists train their hands and open their minds to expression over the course of the year,” Mrs. Sykes noted. “With each successful piece, they are hopefully emboldened to take on new challenges, both in their skills and in the way they express themselves.”

The show also serves as a sendoff for Blair’s graduating seniors, who have devoted so much time and talent in the School’s art studios over the last four years, Mrs. Sykes added.

“I am always impressed at the level of dedication some of our upper-level students demonstrate,” she said. “Even though they are often Blair's busiest students, they dare to keep stretching and creating, taking risks even when the work is time-consuming and difficult. I hope they can truly believe in themselves and know that if they can dream it, they can achieve it, no matter what they are striving to do in life.”
