Brown Hosts First Art Show

Art Teacher Judith Brown hosted an art show April 5 to display the work of Art I, II and III students.  

Students were encouraged to submit one to three pieces to be displayed in the hallway outside the cafeteria during the annual spring showcase hosted by Flames coach and dance teacher Jana Crawford. 

“I wanted to showcase these amazing artists and all of the work they’ve done this year,” Brown said. 

Brown has wanted to do an art show since she first began teaching at LHS in 2020; however, COVID permitted her from doing so, and the following years she was focusing on her family.

“In all honesty, I had babies,” Brown said. “So this year was our first year to really put it together.”

Art student and state VASE (Visual Arts and Scholastic Event) competitor, sophomore Daphne Davenport’s mother reached out to Brown this year and offered to help arrange an art show. 

“That’s when I was like okay, yeah, we have to try to get these students to come and showcase their work,” Brown said.

Davenport entered two pieces in the art show: Edinburgh Skylines and Cozumel Raccoons. Both of which are paintings inspired by her travels.

“The previously mentioned work has a few visuals from my travels in Scotland,” Davenport said. “It’s one of the best trips I’ve been on for its memorable history, culture and architecture.” 

Junior Maricela Guarnieri planned to participate in VASE this year, but was overwhelmed with schoolwork. The show gave Guarnieri an opportunity to showcase her work. 

“I really like this class (ceramics),” she said. “I only come to school for this class and culinary.”

Guarnieri submitted three pieces to the showcase, and out of the three she submitted, her ceramic ‘flower mug’ was her favorite. 

“That was our very first project and I think I did pretty good on that for it being our first project,” she said. “I’m proud of that.”

Brown plans to continue putting on an end of the year art show for upcoming years and getting the community more involved with art.

“We’re trying to promote the art department and all the things that the kids do,” she said.
