Emily Williams ’16 (daughter of Steven and Kathleen Williams of Cazenovia, NY) and Anh Quoc Pham ‘17 (son of Hoa Zuynh Dang and Huy Quoc Pham of Hanoi, Vietnam) were accepted into the CT Regional Scholastic Art Show. Their work will be exhibited in the Silpe Gallery of the University of Hartford from January 17 through February 5.

Emily received an Honorable Mention in the Drawing and Illustration category for her picture, Elephant, and Anh Quoc received a Silver Key in the Digital Art category for his piece entitled City on a Whale. The Ct Regional Scholastic Art participants number 130 schools submitting work in 16 different categories. Each teacher is permitted to submit five pieces. This year, 2000+ entries were submitted and 665 pieces were honored by acceptance. In addition, some submissions received a Gold Key, a Silver Key, or Honorable Mention. The 
winners of the gold key award at the close of the exhibit will have their artwork submitted digitally to the National Level Scholastic Art Awards. A national jury will choose works for exhibit in the National Show held in June 2016.
 
Anh Quoc Pham talked about the inspiration for his digital art piece, “I went to the Museum of Natural History and saw a really big model of a whale. I thought to myself that this whale is big enough to have a house on its back. And that was how I got my idea.”

Founded in 1850 by abolitionist, educator, and outdoorsman Frederick Gunn, The Gunnery is a coeducational college preparatory boarding and day school for students in grades 9 through 12/post-graduate. Dedicated teacher-mentor-coaches challenge students to reach their full potential in a home-like setting where character and citizenship are valued as much as intellect and achievement. Individualized attention and high expectations help young learners develop not only the skills and confidence they will need in college, but also the moral compass and love of learning that will serve them well in life. The school attracts ambitious, academically curious students who will both shine as unique individuals and thrive as contributing members of a deeply connected community. By the time they graduate, Gunnery students have become well rounded, grounded young adults with a sharpened sense of who they are and who they want to become.
