Fayette County Public Schools boasted several talented students in the 28th annual Bluegrass Regional High School Art Exhibition, led by Lafayette’s Madeleine Farrer whose “Trapped” sculpture took overall Best-in-Show honors. Eleven of the 20 works advancing to state competition are from FCPS.
Madeleine also won first place in painting, and Henry Clay’s Katherine Smith earned three awards. Others topping their category were Bryan Station’s Gabe Baczkowski and Sam Stucky, and Lafayette’s Elaine Barkley, Nia Burney, Tucker Stofer and Honami Amauo.
Students from 30 counties participated in the regional contest, sponsored by the Kentucky Art Education Association. The show’s opening reception was March 3, and the winning artwork is on display in the Giles Gallery on EKU’s Richmond campus through March 29. Hosted by Eastern Kentucky University’s Department of Art & Design, the exhibition features the area’s most creative young artists in grades 9-12.
