Showcasing Artistic Talent at Ehret

John Ehret High School recently held its 2nd annual juried art show. The show was open to not only the art students, but all Ehret students, who were asked to submit what they thought was their best work for consideration. Art pieces were placed in different categories for judging, including Art I, II, and III, Talented Visual Art, and IB.

Judges for this year’s competition were Ehret teacher Anne McCloud, talent art teacher Jessica Goldfinch, and Barry Voss from Rau Antiques.

Parents were invited to view the show, along with Ehret students who were asked to vote for a “student favorite.”

“The reason we have arts in all our schools – and we need to build it up even more – is that it gives all students the opportunity to express themselves, said Ehret talent visual art teacher Julie Quirk.

“It’s really exciting to have something like this in the school, and to have students walk in here and be interested in the things that we do,” said art student Pedro Gutierrez.
