TRUSSVILLE – Ten HTMS artists have their work on exhibit at the Birmingham Museum of Art through this Friday.
Katie Bentley, Lilly Clayton, Anu Falola, Reign Hatcher, Anthony Hrbacek, Lilly Nafziger, Ethan Powell, Gavin Roquemore, Maya Serena, and Peerson Waller all have this distinction. Many of them, their families, and their art teacher Kristin Meriam attended the Visual Arts Achievement Program (VAAP) awards reception at the museum Sunday afternoon.
“Special congratulations to Lilly Nafziger and Maya Serena who are middle school first-place winners in VAAP District 4a,” a statement from Trussville City Schools said. “HTHS has four District 4a high school winners as well!”
Lilly’s relief print Death’s Songbird and Maya’s original digital image Picture Day will go on to state level competition. Their art is headed to Montgomery for a show of district winners from all over the state at the Georgine Clarke Alabama Artists Gallery in the RSA Tower.
Alabama State Council on the Arts will then honor state-level winners in Montgomery April 13.
“Good luck to all six Hewitt-Trussville artists in the VAAP state finals!” TCS stated.
