Texas Society of Sculptors’ Annual Summer Show features Works by Georgetown High School Students

The Texas Society of Sculptor’s annual summer show is happening now through Sept. 20 at the Georgetown Public Library, and this year, features the work of two Georgetown High School students.

Art teacher Angie Morin inspired Kendra Skeen and Zachary Miller to submit their designs for consideration in the competitive, juried exhibit, a 12-year tradition at the library. 

Skeen’s work used ceramics, paper and wire for the piece inspired by her chihuahua. The piece, Rocky, is a brightly-colored Aelbrije, a mythical creature from Mexican folk art.

Miller created Geometric Causeway from ABS plastics and colored wax. He will participate in an artist demonstration happening at the Library on Sept. 14 from 1-3 pm.

“This is an incredible opportunity for art students to showcase their work in a juried show,” said Carol Watson, fine arts director for the district. “Georgetown has an amazing arts presence and seeing our students work honored in this way is a testament to the quality of our programs.” 

Most pieces in the show are available for sale, including Rocky

This year’s exhibit runs through Saturday, Sept. 20. An exhibit catalog is available for those who would like to walk through the exhibit and see all 72 pieces.
