The annual Art and CTE Showcase took over Lowry on Thursday, June, 1 when more than 120 students showcased different art pieces and creations. The show was from 6-8 and about 200 people came throughout the night to check out what Lowry had to offer.
“We had a really great turnout this year. We have had a lot of changes in the art department this year it they have all been good and we are looking forward to the future,” said art teacher Julia Topholm.
Every year the program loses seniors but with many underclassmen shining there is no doubt the program will continue to prosper.
“We are going to miss our senior students, but we have a lot of freshman that are very skilled and so our program is going to stay strong,” added Topholm.
The Showcase wasn't just a one night experience for those involved. It has been a work in progress from the first day of school. It has been a full year process and it shows with the variations of work that were featured. There were art nouveau, concert posters, assemblage art, contemporary installation pieces, and many more.
“Overall the Showcase has been a success. We brought a variety to showcase different styles and mediums. It has been a pleasure working with everyone,” said Topholm.
The students in the Showcase were just as pleased with themselves as those around them.
“My favorite part about the Showcase is that it's one last hoorah to show off everyone's masterpieces they have created throughout the year,” said senior Tyler Jenkins.
Fellow Showcase student Tatyana Carlson agreed.
“I love seeing everyone's creativity and art that they have spent so much time on. It's a night to sit back and show off what you have done,” said Carlson.
