View a photo gallery of the Artwalk and Postcard Show
Nearly 300 students exhibited work in this year’s all-school Artwalk, which featured artwork in all media and from all grades displayed throughout the Blair Family Center for the Arts. Interative Artwalk maps indicated where the art was displayed and visitors-—including students, staff and parents—received stamps at various checkpoints throughout the event. Students were also on hand to talk about their work.
Of the many beautiful pieces displayed, those pieces made with fruit roll-up candy were of particular interest, to see how the artists worked with this unusual medium. As always, the Lower School sculptures and papier mache works of animals and food were also very popular and fun to explore. And the fine art of our Upper School students—sculpting, drawing, painting and ceramic work—were once again a highlight and demonstrated the tremendous talent and skill by so many of our students.
Another component of the event was the colorful Postcard Show. In conjunction with the Upper School English Department, the show asked every Upper School teacher to write a poem, letter or other thoughts on a postcard. Then, art students received the written cards and responded by creating images inspired by the words. Everyone enjoyed browsing the cards to appreciate both the words and the responding images they generated.
