Blair's fine artists will share their talents with the community in the final art exhibit of the year from April 25 to May 20 in The Romano Gallery. Original student works, including photography, film, paintings, drawings, graphic design, 3D pieces and more will be on display for all to see. An artists' reception was held on Friday, May 3, at 7 p.m., giving students the opportunity to discuss and share their work with their peers, teachers and the Blair community.
The annual student art exhibition is a much-anticipated event, noted fine arts department chair Kate Sykes, as it gives well-deserved attention to Blair's artists, including those just exploring fine arts for the first time to those who have taken many of Blair’s course offerings.
“The exhibition is one of the many ways our fine artist students can showcase their work and be celebrated for honing their discipline over the course of their time at Blair,” Mrs. Sykes said. “The art is so compelling year after year as each student brings their own style, as well as energy, dedication and spirit to the work. Everyone knows an artist here at the School, and this exhibition gives the community the opportunity to celebrate them.”
The show also serves as a farewell for graduating seniors, who have devoted so much time and talent in the School's art studios over the last four years, Mrs. Sykes added.
“Some of our students have been taking classes in the same discipline for close to four years, and, while a few may go on careers in the arts, this may be the last time that they exhibit work in an art show,” Ms Sykes said.
