High school students show off artistic talent

VEEDERSBURG, Ind. — Student art at its best is on display in western Indiana.

The 34th annual d’Arlier Trust Student Art Show is under way in the d’Arlier Cultural Center, 405 N. Mill St., with 345 pieces of art on display from all eight Wabash River Conference schools and beyond to the east and south. Fifteen schools are represented.

"The judges did a lot of talking among themselves as they judged the entries," said Carolyn Lloyd, director of the d’Arlier Cultural Center. "There is a lot more pottery and sculptures this year."

Last year’s show drew 333 entries.

Two Fountain Central High School students will receive the top awards at Thursday’s program.

Best of show winners are Virginia Houser in grades 10-12 for an ink drawing and Taylor Bone in grades 7-9 for an ink drawing.

Reserve best of show winners were a couple of Crawfordsville High School students: Molly Sells in grades 10-12 for a collage and Nikki Glauner in grades 7-9 for a pottery and sculpture art.

Students received first-, second-, thirdand honorable mention in more than 20 categories. The students in grades 10-12 competed for monetary awards with $100 going to best show and $50 for reserve best of show. In the various categories, a first earned $40; a second, $30; and a third, $15.

In grades 7-9 best of show receives $50 and the reserve best of show gets $25. Those receiving first receive $20; second, $15; and third, $10.

The d’Arlier show is the only student art show in the area outside of their schools. The show was started at North Vermillion High School by Otis Huddleston. Later the show was combined with the Wabash Valley Art Show and conducted in the community room of the Fountain County Courthouse in Covington. It was at the Beef House for a couple years before moving to the d’Arlier Cultural Center in 2001.

"This is a good show," said Fountain Central art teacher Joe Groover, one of the volunteers who helps with the art show. "There is good stuff here."

Tri Kappa of Veedersburg provides the judges and docents for the show.

"Funds are available in the D’Arlier Tust Fund to be used for cultural education," Lloyd said.

The awards program for the d’Arlier Trust Student Art Show will be at 7 p.m. EDT Thursday at the Veedersburg United Methodist Church. A reception will follow in the church basement.
