Macon, GA. – Two Tattnall students had the opportunity to exhibit artwork at the Capitol Art Exhibit which is co-sponsored by the Georgia Art Education Association and Office of the Secretary of State. Abigayle Baugh (2nd) and Jorja Ethridge (5th) traveled to Atlanta to meet and discuss their artwork with representatives John Kennedy, James Presley and Virgil Fludd.
Members of the GAEA may submit two entries for the exhibit annually. Mrs. Amanda Morris, TSA Lower School Art Teacher, said she chose pieces by Baugh and Ethridge because of their creativity and hard work. “The girls were able to view artwork from students all over the state. It’s a wonderful honor to be a part of this event,”commented Morris.
The Capitol Art Exhibit is the premier event of Youth Art Month and the largest exhibit in the state. According to the GAEA website, the event’s purpose is to share with our legislators and the public the exceptional, creative ability of Georgia’s students.
