GHS Hosts Annual Winter Art Show

Artists Dreaming Up Their Best Work

The next Picasso, the next Ansel Adams, or the next Shio Kusaka may have had their work on display at the annual GHS Art Show in the commons. Many different mediums were shared such as paintings, drawings, photos, and ceramics—a little bit of everything for someone.

“It was really fun being the model in these photos,” said Ace James, the partner, and model of photographer Camden Horrocks, “We both have a shared interest in urban exploring and he felt that I fit the style of photography he wanted to do.” Photography was a large focus of the art on display but there was also art of many other mediums including digital are pieces, sculpture and ceramic pieces.

“It took experimenting and hard work to make that pot,” said Nicole Kempe, a student of Fiona Kahlo who made the piece called, “Pot with Ivy.” “It feels great to have that product of all my work on display.” Digital works are also featured such as Gavin Allen’s, “Fallen Angel”.

“At first I wasn’t entering it into an art contest, I was making it for my enjoyment. Then I heard of the art show and that gave me inspiration to work on it during lunch,” said Allen about his work, “A lot of people are surprised that I made my piece.”

The annual art show was on display in the commons for a week and winners will be announced at the end.

About the Contributor
Jackson Jenkins, Newspaper Assistant Editor
This life of a musician is fulfilling, it is what makes him as a person, it is the reason he gets out of bed, music is the reason he feels content, music is the reason he is the person he is now. Jackson jenkins is a senior at grantsville highschool, he is a part of the school marching band as well as his own band with some of the school faculty. He is a very accomplished musician and has the instruments to prove it. Jackson shreds, his live for guitar and the sharp feeling that he gets when he plays it comes back to when he was a little kid playing at the school of rock, a school specifically for the most gifted musicians, he plays his heart to the floor every day, and he doesn't stop because he feels there would be somethings missing The goals that he has for his music are nothing short of challenging, Jackson has been shredding every day for the past 8 years for at least an hour. He says he gets caught up in the moment of playing the guitar so much that it is usually more than an hour. When he is playing music he says it is like he's speaking another language, he feels like he is creating something new and better than he has before every time he plays. The sense of accomplishment he feels every time he even puts a finger on his guitar that is always kept nice and clean for the next time he wants to make the music language that he is creating.
