Six Ribbons Collected at Young Peoples Art Exhibition

Springtime means FVS artists learn about awards they have won in citywide competitions. Six of them won awards in the recent Young Peoples Art Exhibition. 

Six Fountain Valley School of Colorado student artists collected awards in the 54th annual Pikes Peak Young Peoples Art Exhibition (YPAE). The show is a regional competition sponsored by Colorado Springs School District 11 and open to all area students.

Three FVS students collected blue ribbons for their work: Finn Cook ’17 for a watercolor titled “Bahamas Seascape,” Greer Hill ’16 for her piece in the nonfunctional ceramics category, and Annika Furman ’17 in the fashion design category. Garrett Pattee ’17 won the Creativity Award for metalsmithing.

FVS artists work under the tutelage of Arts Department Chair Mark Dillon P ’08, ’10, ’11 (ceramics and metalsmithing), Addie Green ’06 (studio arts and ceramics) and Cheye Pagel ’09 (photography).

Other award winners were Owen Bedford ’16, who won a second-place ribbon in the functional ceramics category, and Yvonne Fu ’17, who was third in the painting category for her self-portrait. Student work was displayed at the Imagination Space in Colorado Springs from April 22-May 7. Take a look at some photos of their work.
