“The Graduating Artists’ Final Farewell”
As the 2018-2019 school year nears its end, students and teachers begin preparation on a beloved annual tradition. The senior art show allows graduating students a final chance to display their hard work created over the course of the year. “It’s a collaboration between the visual art teachers and the best work that the seniors have done over the course of their time here,” says visual arts teacher Teresa Phipps. “It forms a really professional collection of work.”
Though this has been an annual tradition for a while at GHS, this year’s senior art show promises to be especially exciting. Previous years have featured political statements, work highlighting social injustice, and portraits of actual students at Germantown High School. Phipps believes that her students this year have created unique works of art that express their own personalities. “Their work has to do with a theme that’s been important to them, which they research and create a body of work based around.”
The show, which opens on April 14th, takes place in the Poplar Pike Playhouse theatre. The exhibition is open to the public over two weeks. However, April 14th from 2-4 pm is the opening reception. Those who attend can enjoy light refreshments and live piano accompaniment while taking in the artwork.
The GHS Senior Art Show runs through April 26th. For further information, contact the Poplar Pike Playhouse at (901) 755-7775.
