Pyramid Art Show exhibits Elementary School through High School Talent. By Calathea Pacifica
On March 22, Falls Church High School hosted its Pyramid Art Show. This annual event features student artwork and explores a wide variety of artistic mediums, including paintings, photography, drawings, digital artwork, and sculpture. The Pyramid Art Show is unique in that it displays the art of not only high schoolers, but also middle and elementary school students. The participating elementary schools are Camelot, Fairhill, Graham Road, Timber Lane, Pine Spring, Westlawn, and Woodburn; Luther Jackson is the participating middle school. The Falls Church Pyramid Art Show presented awards to some students with each administrator from the participating schools recognizing one piece of artwork to present with the Administrator’s Award.
At this year’s Regional Scholastic Competition, Falls Church art students received a total of 10 awards between Gold, Silver, and Honorable Mention. These award-winning pieces of art were on display at the Pyramid Art Show, and much admired by spectators. The art from these students reflects a high level of accomplishment and years of practice, but for many of the elementary schoolers participating, this was their first art show.
This eclectic showcase of work from students - both young and old - exhibits not only the talent of young artists, but also their progression. The Pyramid Art Show is a showcase of a variety perspectives and interpretations on the world as seen through the eyes of Fairfax County art students. The entire community is invited to attend next year’s show held in the FCHS cafeteria and entry is free. Come and experience an evening of art. (Students living on the north side of Annandale or at least 50% of our population, attend Falls Church High School. It is one of two hometown high schools.)
