Beam Art Show
19th Annual Virginia Judd Beam Visual Arts Invitational and Prize
Thursday, May 1, 2014
Featuring the work of Laurel School Juniors and Seniors
The 18th Annual Beam Visual Arts Exhibition will be held on May 1, 2014, in Holloway Gallery in the Upper School Hallway. Through a generous endowment gift from Frank and Jinny Beam ’54, The Virginia Judd Beam Visual Arts Invitational and Prize provides students an opportunity to create art in a wide range of media and submit it for consideration in a juried art exhibition. The Beam Invitational acknowledges the vital role played by the visual arts in the academic curriculum at Laurel. Through the exploration of the visual arts, students gain technical proficiency, and are encouraged to think independently, take risks and flex their creative “muscles,” skills that will serve them well throughout their lives.
Special thanks are extended to Frank and Jinny Beam, our jurors, Visual Art Department Co-Chair and Upper School Visual Arts Teacher Jane Berger, Upper School Visual Arts Photography Teacher Renee Psiakis, and Middle and Upper School Visual Arts Teachers Catherine Butler and Jeanne Regan, who worked closely with the Seniors and Juniors who submitted work.
