Last week I had the pleasure of being the Fine Metals Category judge at the Hempfield High School Art Fair. “High school art fair?” you must be thinking. But you wouldn’t believe the level of work these students had. Not only does the school have tons of specialized art classes – printmaking, drawing/painting, glass, metals, ceramics, photography, fibers, etc. – but they really know how to showcase the students’ work.
There was a judge for each of the 10 categories who got to choose winners and we all got to vote on the best student overall based on body of work. It was such a difficult decision, but I was able to narrow it down to Gold, Silver, Bronze and two additional awards for best chain and best use of mixed media. Here are some photos from the show:
