Mayfield artists continue to shine!

Congratulations to our talented students who have recently accepted awards at different local art galleries. 

Students from Richard Kent’s art class, Abrianna Hayes and Logan Farman, were selected as award winners at the Paul Nigra Center for Creative Art’s Regional Art Show. Abrianna took home two awards: First Place Student Award of Excellence for her piece “Ellie”; and The Traditions Award, sponsored by local artist and former art teacher, Kathryn M. Zajicek, for her piece “Snow City”. Logan was awarded Fourth Place for The Brian Gifford Award for her piece “Classic”. This award was sponsored by local artist, John Morrette. Both students were presented with a certificate, a one-year membership to the Nigra Arts Center and a monetary gift.

The Nigra Art Center’s Regional Art Show features artwork from regional artists as well as a student showcase of more than 400 pieces from local elementary, middle and high schools. Students’ artwork will be on display now until May 25th.
