FullSizeRender (10)Mrs. Patrick’s high school art students have been pushing themselves lately.  Nine of them completed individual projects to compete for entry in the Horry-Georgetown County High Schools 15th Annual Juried Art Exhibition. Jurors viewed some 400 pieces at schools all over these two counties, judging them on craftsmanship, originality, and a clear understanding of the principles and elements of design.

Avery Rose’s 3-dimensional piece The End was selected for display at the Myrtle Beach Museum. The End, whose main colors are black, red and white, features three stages of a falling figure, black plastic filigree dolls atop an open book. “In just a brief moment, a life can end, like the ending of a book,” Avery Rose said. “Her story is never told.” Avery Rose also said that working on her piece was interesting: “I was just studying falling and then remaking it.”

The Annual Art Show will be held at Myrtle Beach Art Museum from April 17- May 22, 2016. The opening reception and awards ceremony will take place on April 17 from 1pm-3pm at the museum and everyone is invited. Jim Arendt, Coastal Carolina University Gallery Director, will be judging the art work. We are so proud of the hard work and artistic skills of our Kingfishers, and special congratulations to Avery Rose and Mrs. Patrick!
