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.
