Sixteen Bedford High School students and three from John Glenn Middle School have won 2014 Scholastic Art Awards.
Submitted by teachers in each school late last year, Bedford students’ work in ceramics and glass, digital art, drawing, mixed media, painting, photography, printmaking, and sculpture was judged by a panel from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston.
All of the winners will be honored at an Awards Ceremony at Northeastern University on March 8. The Gold Key winners will be exhibited at Boston City Hall on Monday through Friday, 9 am to 5 pm, from March 7 through March 28. Bedford High School art teachers are bringing approximately 80 students on a field trip to see the show in late March.
Gold Key awards winners include BHS students Kevin Altschuler for Hobbyhorse; Kyra Bemis for Portrait of Jay Stolar; Abby Bosco for Reverb; Juwon Jeon for Aerial Dream; and Natalia Soares for Me. Silver Key award winners at BHS: Gwen Gardner for Self Portrait and Fiddlehead; Chris Iwany for Possibilities; and Alexa Vafiades for Op Box.
Honorable Mentions went to BHS students Analisa Chap for Reality; Victor Chen for Reflection; Martin Goldschmidt for Mask Of The Samurai; Xiuxiu Lobosco for Leather Satchel; Jackie Nguyen for Suitcase; Keara Russell for Ms. Boynton; and Vitoria Soares for Elephant Canopic Jar; and JGMS students Taline Dawson for Combat, Jenna Sharkawy for Egypt in Turmoil, and Leslie Yan for an untitled drawing.
BHS art staff submitting their students’ work to the competition include Arts Program Administrator Aleta Devaney along with BHS teachers Jan Donghee, Larry Scheifeld, Kate Sussman, and Eileen Wagner at BHS; and Candace Banks at JGMS.
