Budding artists from Germantown Academy were selected to have their works of art displayed during the 39th Annual Montgomery County High School Exhibition and Competition, which took place from March 8 to 31 at the Montgomery County Community College Fine Arts Center Gallery. Those selected were also given an award for excellence, including Natalie Rock '18, who was selected for her sculpture Staring Black, Richard Niu '17, who produced and edited the short film Touchscreen, and current and former GA digital media students, including Gabe Alter '16 and Niki Roman '16, for their short film Everything We Dreamed Of.
The juried show included about 150 pieces by 144 artists representing 17 different high schools in the county. Schools were permitted to submit up to 10 works selected by art teachers at those schools. The creations were then juried by Linda Crane, an independent artist who taught art for 33 years in local school districts.
A reception and awards ceremony featuring the artists was held on March 22.
