The Underwood Art Department submitted works to the 6A Regional Art Show at University of Minnesota Morris campus.
These pieces where chosen as some of the best work from the art students this year.
“It is always hard to choose the pieces we will send,” Art teacher Jonathan Hartman said. “Not only am I limited by the nine categories, but also the total number of pieces we can submit, 18. ”
This year really was different than in the past. The work was displayed on March 10 at the U of M Morris Gallery. Twelve students from Underwood had work on display. The Arts Festival and awards were handed out on March 14.
The Regional Arts Show included Battle Lake, Brandon, Campbell-Tintah, Minnewaska, Morris, Parkers Prairie, Underwood and West Central.
There were a total of 112 works from the schools.
Superior is the highest award given and Underwood received five this year. Underwood also received four Excellent awards. Although not all of the students receive awards, it is still a great accomplishment to have their work on display.
The following is a list of students and their awards:
• Asante Creek Superior
• Justin Masloski Superior
• Olivia Kollar, Superior
• Corrina Denston, Superior
• Gabrielle Bernhardt, Superior
• Gaige Jevne, Excellent
• Morgan Halvorson, Excellent
• Ashley Fults, Excellent
Along with these awards, Corrina Denston with Olivia Kollar’s tied and both received Best in Category for their Mixed Media pieces.
This is a great accomplishment, especially due to the fact that there are only nine categories. These two works will be sent to the State Arts Show at the Perpich Center for Arts Education from May 10 through17.
