Art students recently had the opportunity to exhibit some of their pieces in shows outside of the school community.

Several students displayed their work at the Inter-School Student Art Exhibition at Shipley. The show ran from February 10 to March 12, drawing art from local private schools, including Haverford, Shipley, Agnes Irwin, Baldwin, Episcopal, and Friends’ Central.

Sixth Form entries include Bobby Blewett’s epoxy and wood table, Drew Paradis’ French cleat hanger, Zach Sumner’s wooden rings, Noah Rubien’s still-life painting, Vincent Scauzzo’s colored-pencil drawing of the school’s track, and Andrew Tornetta’s painting of a fish. Fifth Former Tyler Zimmer submitted a colored-pencil drawing, while Fourth Formers Patrick Donaher and Brendan Sullivan submitted green-screen videos.

A handful of students also sent pieces to the 42nd Annual Montgomery County High School Exhibition at Montgomery County Community College. The works are on display from March 3 to March 27. This show collects art from large public schools as well as private schools across Montgomery County. Tornetta submitted a realist painting of a waterfall and mountain nature setting, while Donaher displayed an image he created in Adobe Illustrator.

“We want to connect Haverford students to the broader art community.”

Art Department Chair Mr. Chris Fox

According to the Art Department Chair Mr. Chris Fox, art teachers select appropriate pieces for the show. Students in all four mediums, including 3D, 2D, ceramics, and digital art, entered the shows.

“We want to connect Haverford students to the broader art community,” Mr. Fox said.
