The Nebraska Capitol Conference put on its annual Art Show at Logan View High School on Wednesday, April 13th, 2022. The show consisted of artwork made by high school students throughout the NCC conference. The conference schools included; Arlington, Ashland-Greenwood, Conestoga, DC West, Fort Calhoun, Logan View, Louisville, and Syracuse. Due to the pandemic, the show had not been held in person for 3 years, so the students and the public were able to see all the work in person at last. Awards were presented within each art category as well as The Best of Show, Best of Show Honorable Mentions (2), and the Outstanding Artists from each school.
There was a great turnout of visitors to promote the school’s visual art program. The students and visitors even got to vote for their Student-Choice and People-Choice winners from the show. LV art teacher Emily Saylor said, “Having the opportunity to display their artwork for their peers and teachers in a gallery style setting gives students an opportunity to take pride in the art they have created.” This show is also a great opportunity for students who aren’t involved in competitive events or sports to show off their accomplishments. There were many talented student artists!
Outstanding Art Awards were earned by the following students: (not in particular order) Freddy Pelayo, Logan View; Aadra Karr, Arlington; Brooke Johnson, Fort Calhoun; Emma Toller, DC West; Haley Witte, Yutan; Skylar Good, Louisville; Shea Barnes, Ashland-Greenwood; Lindsey Moss, Syracuse; and Addie Priefert, Conestoga.
Judges spent the morning evaluating each piece of art work and awarding winners in each category along with the Best of Show and the Honorable Mentions.
Two Best of Show Honorable Mention awards were given at the Capitol Conference Art Show last week at Logan View. One of the awards went to junior art student Aadra Karr from Arlington with her pencil drawing entitled “Can’t Escape”.
Best of Show at the Nebraska Capitol Conference Art Show went to Sophomore Brooke Johnsen from Fort Calhoun with her oil painting, “After Midnight”. Brooke also picked up Honorable Mentions with two other pieces in the oil painting division one entitled, “Spacing Out” and the other, “Remembering Our Love”.
Ashley Abrahams a junior at Logan View was awarded Honorable Mention at the NCC Art Show with her Collage entitled “Wild & Free”.
Logan View visual art students were on hand to help with the NCC Art Show. Art students helped with the displaying of art work along with getting ribbons attached to the art pieces after judging was complete as well as tabulating the voting for the Student and People Choice awards.
