HHS Students Selected for Rockford Art Museum Young Artist Show

Twelve Huntley High School students have been selected to exhibit their artwork at the Rockford Art Museum’s 78th annual Young Artist’s Show.

Students submitted their work in January to be judged, along with hundreds of students from schools within the 50-mile radius from the Rockford Art Museum. These few students’ work beat out hundreds of other artworks to be part of the select few chosen by the jurors for the Young Artist’s Show. A total of 138 pieces from the 14 schools were chosen to go on display in this year’s show.

The students are:

  • Enrika Narvilaite
  • Mady Benedetti
  • Hadley Giocacchini
  • Allison Boroski
  • Elizabeth Tatosian
  • Olivia Van House
  • Bradlee Leiseberg
  • Shokie Tseumah
  • Emily Gaurino
  • Katiana Herrera
  • Patricia Swierczek
  • Jessica Essa

Narvilaite made school history as the first HHS student to win the prestigious portfolio scholarship award.

In addition, Gaurino’s work was chosen as a Juror’s Pick, and Essa’s sculpture was a RAM staff choice. In addition, Boroski’s foam sculpture received an Honorable Mention.

The high school division show will open March 3 with a free public opening and awards presentation from 1-3 p.m.

The Young Artist Show is on view at RAM in Anderson Gallery, on the museum’s lower level. Teachers and anyone 18 and under receive FREE admission to RAM throughout the Young Artist Show (March 3–31, 2019).
