15th Annual Senior Spotlight Exhibit huge success, 'Best In Show' winner announced...

Senior Spotlight was bigger than ever, featuring a variety of amazing works of art from 7 senior artists.  Pictured here are all 7, Matt Brice, Ms Diaz (teacher of all 7), Anna Karpman, Olivia Lim, Hanna Lefcourt, Sam Leung, Gordon Marquardt, Lauren Kearney & head of the department, Mr. Emery.

The lunchtime opening saw a packed house in the Swartley Gallery with students, teachers, family, friends and even our illustrious and supportive head of school, Rodney Dejarnett, here on the left checking out some of his favorites works.

'We couldn't have done it without the amazing support of our parents, teachers and friends,' was heard again and we see parents of Matt Brice 12' and Gordon Marquardt 12' as well as Ms. Diaz (art instructor of all 7 spotlighted artists this year.)

Last year a new tradition began with the initiation of the 'Best In Show'...voted on by all attendees of the exhibit.  The 'Best In Show' artist is awarded an art supply gift card and free passes to area museums.  They are also invited to exhibit their winning artwork on the D-E campus.  This year's winner was Anna Karpman with her stunning fashion design. 

Congratulations to all of this year's artists!  We are so very proud of you and look forward of continuing to hear of your artistic accomplishments as you leave Swartley in a few short months...
