Local students honored at High School Art Exhibit
Several local Baltimore County Public Schools students earned honors at the awards reception for the 32nd Annual High School Art Exhibit, held at the Rosenberg Gallery at Goucher College on May 31.
Among those students honored were Emalee Fritz of Patapsco High School and Center for the Arts, who took home a first-place Laubheimer Award (named after the late James Laubheimer, former BCPS coordinator of art).
Fritz was also honored as the Teacher’s Choice and People’s Choice winner.
Other honorees included Alexis Mullins of Sparrows Point High School, who won a BCPS Award for Best 3D and Nicholas Kokoszka of Patapsco High School and Center for the Arts, who won honorable mentions for BCPS Awards as well as the Azrael, Franz, Schwab & Lipowitz Awards.
In the exhibit program, Sherri Fisher, visual arts coordinator, and Linda McConaughy, visual arts supervisor wrote, “The work included in the 32nd Annual High School Art Exhibit reflects the hard work of Baltimore County Public Schools art students and art educators, as well as the commitment of BCPS to visual arts education. The work is the result of a sequential PreKindergarten through Grade 12 art program that allows for continuous artistic exploration and growth throughout each student’s education experience.”
The exhibit closed on Tuesday, June 12. Many of the works are available for sale. For more information, contact the Office of Visual Arts at 443-809-4030.
