Huang's Artwork Wins Awards

February 10, 2020

Congratulations to senior Krystal Huang, who had five pieces of art selected for the 2020 Scholastic Art & Writing Awards.  Her works ranged from graphite drawings and a digital image (honorable mentions) to a fashion installation called "Encumbrance" that won a Silver Key award -- see a Photo Gallery of her artwork.  The awards were presented by the Alliance for Young Artists and Writers. 

Students from all divisions performed at the All-School Talent Show on Feb. 5 in Founders Theater.  See a Photo Gallery of acts at the show that were shot by Max Rickard.  The Talent Show raised $134.50 for Terrain, a local non-profit supporting artists, makers and culture creators of the Inland Northwest.

The portraits of orphans that SGS Upper School students created were delivered to the children in Pakistan recently.  Watch the Memory Project Video of the excited children receiving their drawings.  Selina Yang’s portrait (in the hands of the second girl from the right in photo above) can be seen briefly at the 5:04 point in the video.  See the Photo Gallery of the SGS students holding their artwork before it was sent of to South Asia.

Upper School Ceramics students spent time in November painting the individual parts of the "Ceramic Wave" now on display in the Art Gallery.  Then the pieces were fired and assembled to create the final installation.  See a Photo Gallery of the glazing process.

Upper School ceramics students created this wave of individually fired pieces to highlight the challenges faced by the ocean.  Visitors can also take a small ceramic "drop" as a reminder to be aware of what we can do to help the oceans stay healthy.  See a Photo Gallery of the exhibit; it will be on display for the month of January.
