May 18, 2001 – Fifteen students are represented in the first-ever senior exhibition presented by the Art Department at Ivanna Eudora Kean High School.
The show, which is expected to become an annual affair, opened in the EKHS library with a reception Thursday evening and will hang through Wednesday, May 23.
This exhibition represents the best work that the 15 graduating art students have produced over their four years as high school students. The pieces on display are in a variety of mediums, both two and three dimensional, including watercolor, tempura, acrylic, ink, mixed media, photography and collage.
Art teacher and exhibition organizer Frances M. Rutnik welcomed opening night guests and introduced the senior art students to visitors. The seniors are: Gideon Adjohda, Lestor Angol, Aqueelah Beazer, Jason Casimir, Chasda Clendinen, Dario Correa, Ernest Dennery Jr., Shermain Donovan, Kelston Drew, Damien Hendrickson, Heidi Peters, Ja'mel Savage, Jason Sorhaindo, Cameta Warner and Mark Yarde.
Principal Sinclair Wilkinson thanked everyone involved in organizing and mounting the exhibition, including Art Department chair Lisa Etre, art teacher Alrid Lockhart, photography instructor Barbara Young, graphics/communications teacher Ronald Blyden, drafting teacher Colin Hanley and head librarian Rachelle Shells.
Also well represented at the opening reception was Eudora Kean art of two other sorts — food prepared by Family and Consumer Science Department students under the supervision of department chair Fern Callwood, and music by the Jazz Combo, including a catchy rendition of "Blue Moon" that featured vocalist Daniella Greenaway.
The exhibition will be open to public viewing Monday through Wednesday during school hours.
