Maya Rohling’s artwork chosen for FMCC Regional High School Art Exhibition

Visitors to Fulton Montgomery Community College’s annual Regional High School Art Exhibition will view artwork by Mayfield sophomore Maya Rohling, whose drawing was accepted into the April 1-13 event.

The juried exhibition will take place in FMCC’s Perrella Gallery.

Maya, a student in Rik Kent’s Studio Art class, had to choose a photograph to draw for an assignment and found an image of a hand dialing a rotary phone that she said, “would work in black and white.

“I liked the composition of it,” she said. “I searched through a lot of photos on Pinterest before finding it.”

Maya enjoys taking art classes in school and would advise other students to sign up. “I like to do art and take a lot of art classes in school. I’d tell others to just do it. School is difficult and art is a fun break between other classes.”

Maya said she’s “not a big art person” outside of school; she plays softball and soccer and loves to read in her free time. After graduation, Maya would like to study pre-law and then go to law school. After many virtual campus visits and online research, she is focusing on Boston College.

Congratulations on the art exhibition, Maya!
