Maharishi Upper School students entered 15 works and received 12 awards at the 2004 Superconference Art Show held last month at Wesleyan College in Mt. Pleasant.
Students entered work in the contest, and also participated in workshops conducted by professional art and photography teachers. 'All the students had a great time participating in the conference,' said photography teacher Carolyn Waksman.
Taylor Butterfield, grade 11, won 'Best of Show' for his achromatic drawing. Also winning in this category were Coral Morales, grade 11, third place; and Melodia Morales, grade 11, honorable mention.
In photography, Spring Cutter, grade 12, received first place; Malinda Gosvig, grade 12, second place; and Anna Sica, grade 10, third place. Receiving honorable mention for photography were Ms. Sica; Ryan Huggins, grade 12; Camie Bargerstock, grade 12; and T. J. Smith, grade 12.
In the category of mixed media photography sculpture, Deborah Swartz, grade 11, won third place. And Katy Kirbach, grade 12, won a first place in painting.
The judges said that a particular strength among the categories was photography -- a category dominated by Maharishi School students. 'Perhaps photography, above all the rest, demonstrated a real desire to express their subject matter in a new and visual way,' the judges said.
The work of these winners and more will be shown at Maharishi School's Annual Art and Photography Show in Gallery 108. The show will open for the May ArtWalk and will be up through the end of May. In addition to Ms. Waksman, who teaches photography, Greg Thatcher teaches Upper School art.
