PTHS Art Students Win Teen Spirit Exhibition Honors

17 Tilghman Art students had work accepted for the 20th Annual Teen Spirit art exhibition at Yeiser Art Center.

For the 20th anniversary, the Teen Spirit exhibition is bigger than ever, as Juror Paul Aho has selected 174 works, from 147 artists, representing 14 schools. Nearly 500 pieces of work were entered for judging.

Sophomore Lily Shapiro won "Best of Category" in Photography for "Moonrise". Senior Savanna Whelan received a Paducah School of Art Scholarship for her photograph "Fair. You can see a gallery of images of the artwork entered in Teen Spirit here.

Students who had work accepted into the show included Raul Delapaz (sculpture), Molly Thompson (sculpture), Jada Johnson (sculpture), Kiki Willett (sculpture), Ashley Goheen (ceramics), Isiah Patterson (ceramics), Zain Hertter (drawing), Ion Kight (drawing), Jacob Holtgrewe (photography), Julie Wilhite (photography), Sable Overlin (sculpture), Joeseph Kelly (photography), Julio Reed (ceramics), Yoshimune Sameshima, and Cameron Twardoski.

"The additional goal of showcasing a far greater number of works has been met by hanging the works salon style, rewarding the efforts of more young artists and encouraging their continued creativity," said Paul Aho. "Yet despite the increase in the number of works, the works in the show are uniformly very good and on many occasions quite exceptional."
