George School is pleased to announce that seven students have been selected to exhibit at the 2020 Phillips’ Mill Youth Art Exhibition. One student has been recognized with an honorable mention.
Nicolas Sun ’21, Hung Hoang ’20, Bob Zhang ’20, Justin Liu ’23, Neha Thumu ’20, Celeste Huang ’22, and Catherine Tatum ’20 were selected to exhibit their artwork. Catherine received an Honorable Mention in the 3-D portion of the exhibition for her side table.
“I knew that I wanted a simple, standard design for the legs, but an eye-catching top,” said Catherine. “Initially, I was going to use pieces of veneer, but Carter showed me a piece of curly maple, maple with a particular kind of grain that gives it a sheen and pattern unlike regular maple, and that was beautiful. I went with that for the top and I’m very pleased with the finished product as it’s both functional and appealing.”
The Youth Art Exhibition was conceived when Phillips’ Mill decided to build on the success of its well-respected adult Art Exhibition, which began in 1929. The exhibition solicits participation from the art departments of high schools located within a twenty-five-mile radius of New Hope. The art department at each school selects the student work. Works are then judged by a juror selected by the Mill and cash prizes are awarded.
The exhibition is open to the public February 1-2, February 8-9, and February 15-16, 2020 from noon to 4:00 p.m. at 2619 River Road (rte 32), New Hope, Pennsylvania 18938. For more information, visit www.phillipsmill.org.
