Upper School artwork recognized in state competition

     The Minnesota Scholastic Art awards competition took place this past February, setting a record with over 4,300 entries in 13 different categories from the Twin Cities metro region. Six Blake artists won Gold and Silver Key Awards as well as Honorable Mentions in the regional competition.

     Gold Key Award winner Katerina Papanikolopoulos ‘17 won recognition for her photographs “The Lovers Fled” and “Floridians,” both captured of an elderly couple in Santiago, Chile. Additionally, Papanikolopoulos’ ceramic piece “Lady of Cyprus” progressed to the National Competition in New York to win the National Silver Award. She reflects on the piece as her “recreation and elongation of the female” and was inspired by her mother.

      Silver Key Award winners were Chris Gill ‘18, Paige Norgaarden ‘17, and Cindy Quinn ‘17. Gill’s drawing of a church within a city was inspired by a piece at the Walker last Spring. Honorable Mention winners were Kelly Brakken ‘17, Anika Mirza ‘18, Katerina Papanikolopoulos ‘17, and Cindy Quinn ‘17. Mirza won recognition for two submitted pieces, a print and a painting.

     The Gold and Silver Key Award winners were honored at the Weisman Art Museum in February.

I have been part of Spectrum since my freshman year and have loved being part of the team ever since. I'm excited to be the online editor and hope to bring new content to the website on a frequent basis. I've had tons of fun as editor of the food page and can't wait for what the year has in store for food.
