Ten Holderness students have had work accepted into the annual Friends of the Arts juried exhibition, a show running from February 1 - February 26 in the Silver Arts Center at Plymouth State University. The exhibit showcases the work of secondary school students throughout central and northern New Hampshire. Students from 24 schools submitted almost 200 pieces for consideration. Seventy-seven were accepted, and, of these, ten pieces came from Holderness artists.

So Hyun Lee' 09 won the "Excellence in Drawing" award with her submission ("Cityscape"), and Toby Harriman '10 won honorable mention in ceramics for his submission ("Ash Blue Bowl").

Other Holderness students who had work accepted included: Amanda Englehardt (Photography), Julien Moreau (Photography), Sam Nungesser (Print), Georgina Ogirri (Sculpture), Kevin Pyo (Photography), Lane Curran (Painting), Laney Hayssen (Photography), and Ebony Sellers (Artist Book).

The opening takes place on Sunday, February 8 from 4 PM - 6 PM in the gallery space at the Silver Center, and Ms. Field and Mr. Nicolay will be taking students down to see it. We encourage faculty, students, and parents to get down to the Silver Center this month to view the free exhibit in person, enjoy the artwork, and help us to celebrate the arts at Holderness.

Congratulations, artists!
