The second quarter winners of the Junior Mary Campbell Easel Award and the Mary Campbell Easel Award are Tibbie Cleveland '28 and Grayson Douglas '23.
Cleveland has been at BGA for seven years, and her winning piece is a Gelli print entitled "Earth." She completed this work as part of a series of prints, exploring organic vs. geometric shapes, positive vs. negative space, and color theory.
Douglas has been at BGA for five years, and her winning piece is a monochromatic colored pencil print entitled "Living in Past Chapters." In this piece, she expresses emotions that come with wanting a chapter of life to last longer, and how those emotions are intensified as an only child.
Both the Junior Mary Campbell Easel Award and Mary Campbell Easel Award were established to honor Mary Campbell's memory and her love of art. Each quarter, BGA art teachers review the work of current art students and choose a piece felt to exemplify the qualities BGA students strive to achieve: creativity, effort, and quality. The Junior award is displayed on an easel in the upper hallway of the Mary Campbell Visual Arts Center for the entire next quarter. The standard award for the Upper School is displayed on an easel in the front hallway of the Mary Campbell Visual Art Center for the entire next quarter.
