On her way to a career in photojournalism, Kendra Frankle, senior, won a Gold Key for her piece above titled All Comes Down. Frankle is one of 23 artists to have their art pieces recognized at the Northwest Scholastic Art Awards.

 

Recently, 23 artists were recognized with 47 Northwest Scholastic Art Awards. Out of those 23, eight won Gold Key awards, the highest award given out, and their pieces will advance to compete at a national level. The option to enter a piece of art wasn’t a requirement, yet many seized the opportunity to see how their work stacked up against others.

“They usually have some that they’re thinking about,” Ann Breyne, photography teacher, said, “And then I will give them feedback and input if they ask. To be honest I had hardly any input this year.”

Along with Breyne, art teachers Marianna Garvey and Diane Gauthier were the two other teachers that had students submit. Although there wasn’t a large percentage of art students that submitted, out of those that did, almost everyone received an award.

“There’s a very strong interest in photography here,” Breyne said. “And we have a very strong program.”

Kendra Frankle, senior, is one of the photographers to submit photos, and walked away with five Honorable Mentions, three Silver Keys and one Gold Key.

“I submitted eight photos and one portfolio which was also eight photos,” Frankle said. “The portfolio had its own concentration; it was about wine workers and field workers.”

Frankle will be attending Savannah College of Art and Design in the fall, and would like to pursue a career in photojournalism. Not all high school artists share a similar dream, yet they will still carry art with them for the rest of their lives.

Hannah Hashbarger, junior, received an Honorable Mention, a Silver Key and a Gold Key in the photography category. Hashbarger doesn’t plan on pursuing photography like Frankle, but she and many other students still submit just to see what will happen.

With this wide array of interest levels, Breyne feels that the amount of recipients this year is a pretty good representation of the talent that resides in the photo room as well as the other art rooms. Although this was the major competition of the year, many of her students, like Frankle, will continue compiling their photos for other opportunities such as scholarships.
