by Katie Kelley, senior journalism class member at LCHS

BULLDOG LANE, --Picture upon picture covered the walls of the Lawrence County High School band room on Friday, September 30, 2011. For the first time in several years, Ms. Susan Schutzberg held an art show to display the work of students in her Humanities classes.

Over 300 of the best quality pieces were put in the show. “I have lots of fine artists in class this year, and I wanted to display their efforts,” Ms. Schutzberg said. “They were very meticulous; they took their time and put a lot of effort and care into their work. I think their works were excellent examples of the principle or element they were trying to show.”

During the day students from other classes attended the show and voted for the pieces they thought were best. “I liked it a lot, and the use of color was really spectacular,” said Dylan Frazier, a senior attendee. “I was really impressed.”

The student voting reflected Ms. Schutzberg’s own choices, and recognition was given as follows:

For Arbitrary Color- 1st place Logan Mills, 2nd place Bethani Derifield, 3rd place Megan Moore, 4th place Morgan Pack.

For Harmony/Variety- 1st place Caitlyn Barnette, 2nd place Trixie Williamson, 3rd place Jacob Estep, 4th place Emily Leibee.

For Texture- 1st place Merissa Bowman, 2nd place Allyson Wheeler, 3rd place Phillip Barnette, 4th place Kristin Baldwin.

For Perspective/ Other- 1st place Lydia Fann, 2nd place Kayla Rucker, 3rd place Rondel Johnson, 4th place Sherana Tomblin.

For Rhythm/Movement- 1st place Katie Kelley, 2nd place Caitlyn Barnette, 3rd place Beth Bowens, 4th place Emily Leibee.

For Emphasis- 1st place Bethany Taylor, 2nd place Sherana Tomblin, 3rd place Kara Kirk, 4th place Allyson Wheeler.

For Balance- 1st place Bethany Taylor, 2nd place Leeann Moore, 3rd place Allyson Wheeler, 4th place Beth Bowens.

For Best in Show- Bethany Taylor.

Will Lawrence County High School repeat the art show next year?

Ms. Schutzberg smiled, “I hope to have another show next year. I guess it will depend on the group of students I have.”
