WHS senior art at Cheap Joe's
Watauga High School's 2010 Senior Art Exhibit is on display through March 30 at Cheap Joe's Art Stuff in Boone. Many of the student artists are in their fourth year of study in visual art at WHS, and much of the work on display will be submitted for evaluation by the AP Art Examiners in May.
Each student was invited to submit five to 10 pieces, and achievement awards, compliments of Cheap Joe's, will be presented to first, second and third place winners, as well as two honorable mentions. Best of class awards chosen by students will also be presented.
WHS visual art instructors are Lori Hill, Shelton Wilder, Susan Dunn and Whit Whitaker. Participating students are Kendall Cahan, Devan Corum, Andrew Capen, Hannah Crittenden, Sarah Duke, Andy Ferrell, Sky Franks, Jenna Green, Heather Greer, Megan Hawthorne, Amanda Jackson, Laurie Kirkpatrick, Dan Margolis, Erin Parsons, Micheal Ray, Madi Shelton, Chelsey Shore, Ian Stewart, Nicole Test, Karl Wheeler, Hannah Yates, Josh Townsend, Will Schell, Jordan Logan, Kelly Sweeney, Gerald Goff, Gragg James, Carly Lundquist, Rhett Taylor, Ashley Proffitt.
A reception will be held Tuesday, March 30, from 5 to 7:30 p.m., and the public is welcome to attend.
"I think it is one of the highest quality student exhibits yet," Hill said.
