St. Joseph’s Academy hosted the 60th annual Student Art Exhibit on the evening of April 24. The show was held in the Academy Arts Center and featured the work of students in Nicole Lane’s art classes.
“This year’s art show was spectacular,” Lane said. “It included painting, drawing, printmaking, ceramics and sculpture from this year’s studio art classes. We made the effort to include at least two pieces from every girl. Their creativity, craftsmanship and design quality are evident on each piece. The art show is a wonderful way for our girls to display their art to friends and family. We are extremely proud of our students for their hard work and determination in making this year’s art show successful.”
Senior Sophia Marchiafava said she had mixed emotions attending her final art exhibit. “Going to my last art show was bittersweet,” she said. “Only being in art my last two years, I have created so many memories and bonded with the best people. Seeing all my talented peers showing off their hard work was so rewarding.”
Sophomore Emily Reynaud said she loved the opportunity to see the many unique works of art. “The hard work and creativity of the girls in the arts programs have truly inspired me to continue to improve on my art skills and appreciate the dedication that each student has for her artwork,” she said.
Sophomore Kate Cochran said she and her family enjoyed visiting the exhibit. “We loved how spread out it was and how it continued throughout the building,” she said. “I personally loved the displays in the very middle that showed series of works placed together to create one complete piece of art.”
