Under the guidance of NH’s three art teachers, Mrs. Lisa Campbell, Mrs. Kathryn Humphrey, and Mr. Jason Blevins, student art was featured at North Harford’s annual Art Show held on May 17. The event featured a wide vari­ety of art in a range of mediums.

Junior Maggie Walden said, “It gives the whole art depart­ment a couple days of spotlight for their pieces and it’s very heartwarming to see and the other kids go through and look at something you have been working on the whole year.”

For many seniors in the program, the gala can be bit­tersweet now signifying the end of their time in the pro­gram and their final art show.

Senior Ray Burton speaks out about how the program has al­ways been a backbone to him. ”This year has been so amazing, just getting to know every teach­er and to get close to them. I feel like each of them taught me some­thing key that I have brought in to my art,” said Burton. He added that he was grateful to be able “to show all the growing I’ve done over this year.” The senior also commented that everybody cares about each other and shows support towards everybody’s art.

Not only did the students plan the whole year for the event, teachers expanded the variety of art being displayed with the ad­dition of this year’s photography classes. According to art teacher Campbell, “It was accumulat­ing work by everyone from this year and past years. It’s excep­tional it seems like there was more work, it expanded. Also new this year was the inclusion North Harford Middle School students and the North Harford Elementary fifth grade students.“

Everybody said it went really well and the art was phenom­enal, the seniors exhibited were beautifully done. It seems like its larger now and there are very eclectic works, not just 2-D, very 3-D,” said Campbell. She added that the event also featured “wire sculptures and the paper sculp­tures and… photography and glass and ceramics. I think it’s definitely expanded and we have gotten a lot of positive feedback. I think now the whole media center is going to be packed next year.”

Blevins added, “I think the Art Show went really well this year from a logistics standpoint, it was much more efficient to set up and not so stressful. I think the art as always was stellar and I’m really proud of the senior showcases and what the seniors were able to do to display their art throughout their career.”
