The Coe-Brown Northwood Academy Art Department is pleased to announce that ten members of the CBNA Class of 2016 have had their artworks added to the CBNA Permanent Art Collection. Each year, senior students who have completed a prescribed course of visual arts study are invited to donate one piece of their two-dimensional artworks to the school’s collection. The works by CBNA members of the Class of 2016 were displayed as a group exhibition during the summer at Barrington Family Practice and Walk-in Care and have returned to CBNA and will soon be on display in the upper foyer area in Pinkham Hall for 2016-2017 school year. During the summer exhibit in Barrington, a special opportunity allowed patrons of the Family Practice to cast their votes for their favorite pieces. Tammy Whitehouse, Office Manager, announced that Billie Pingree’s graphite and pen & ink drawing – Overwhelmed is the recipient of a $100 Visa gift card for receiving the most “People’s Choice” votes during the June to September exhibit. Artists whose works have been donated include: Megan Elwell – the Lin Landscape – Gouache on Illustration Board; Arianna Gunderson – Wading for You – Acrylic on Canvas Board; Julia Harcourt – Xibalba – Digital B & W Photograph; Lily Hunt – Lush – Reverse Acrylic Painting on Glass; Samuel Koskela – Penni – Graphite on Paper; Ryu Kondrup – Disintegrating Island with Melting Red Tricycle – Acrylic on Canvas Board; Hanna Marie – Emily the Flower Girl – Digital; Katherine Martel – Stairway of Mystery – Digital Photographs; Billie Pingree – Overwhelmed – Mixed Media – 20” x 16”; Julie Souryavong – Paper Adventures: A Self-Portrait – Digital Photographs.
