Advanced Placement studio art students will be displaying and selling their works in two shows this weekend.

Tonight the three dimensional sculpture works will be shown beginning at 6 p.m. in the E hall art gallery. On Saturday, the two dimensional art show will take place in at 341 Town Place in Fairview from 5-9 p.m.

Those in attendance will have the opportunity to buy artwork from the individual artists. On Saturday, visitors will also be able to participate in an auction to purchase supplies for an elementary school art program in another district.

Junior Trace Sutherlin said he has been working hard on his art pieces in preparation for the show.

“I was inspired by watching a lot of fantasy horror to make these pieces that evoke this feeling of horror and the design aspects of fantasy creatures,” Sutherlin said.

Students have been able to pick what they want to display from their portfolio. The amount of space students get for their art depends on how many pieces they decide to display.

“Jackie Albers has some really cool stone sculptures, and stone is hard to work with, so I respect the fact she chose to do that for her concentration,” AP 3D art teacher Jeff Seidel said.

Visitors will be able to walk through the whole display room looking at every piece that is displayed.

Junior Kassidy Litchenburg has been working on a 3D representation of a room and wardrobe.

“With my work, I looked to publicly challenge how much hope and happiness we put into materialistic things,” Litchenburg said. “I was so interested in this idea because I catch myself finding my identity in what I wear, and through my art I was able to work through that.”

About the Contributors
Drew Doig, Staff Writer
Entering his fourth and final year on The Red Ledger staff, senior Drew Doig will continue to be a sports writer. Drew, or “Doig” as he’s more commonly called, is a member of the varsity basketball team, National Honor Society, and Fellowship of Christian Athletes. Outside of school, Doig enjoys hanging out with friends and watching sports. A fan of everything Auburn, Doig plans to attend Auburn University. However, with major persuasion from his brother Grant, he could end up attending the University of Arkansas. Doig also enjoys playing video games and will take on any worthy opponent in NCAA 14 or NBA 2K. You can find Doig on the grill as he enjoys throwing on a nice New York Strip with fellow senior Kyle Olson. He enjoys watching The Office and will recite a line from Dwight Schrute when need be. Doig hopes that his wealth of experience on the staff and expressive personality will land him on the TRL’s heralded “RIP wall” next to some of the all time greats that came through E103. Doig couldn’t be more excited to be on the staff for his senior year along with fellow veteran Joseph Vastano, and he’s ready to take the class to an elite level.
Joe Vastano, Staff Writer
Joe Vastano is your average Joe. He is a senior who really likes sports, fishing, and running. Texas A&M is his favorite college, so he cheers for them in any sport, especially football and basketball. Joe has also grown up as a Dallas fan, so the Cowboys and Mavericks will always be his pro teams. When he is not watching sports, he is playing them. His favorite is basketball, and he can be found playing it at any rec center or gym in the area. Joe is hoping that his lengthy time as a staff writer, and his previous term as editor-in-chief of Leopard Life in middle school will pay off in his last go around. Joe is looking forward to grand finale year with his equally superior right hand man Drew Doig.
Shae Daugherty, Section Editor
It’s Daug·herty, /Dortee/, Daugherty. It’s not that hard. Coaches never get it wrong, and that may have been what drove her to sports photography in the first place. When she isn’t leaving sticky notes all over the newsroom, she’s in the heart of the sideline with a few cameras and a small bag of SD cards. She spends nearly all her time with the Sideline Team, causing trouble or residing in the studio. Her favorite part of football season is the two hours before any game, when the photographers go to dinner, or at least they try to. Shae’s sustained many injuries during her five year run as a sports photographer due to her inability to see players charging at her. Ironically, the Photo Editor is legally blind, and will crack numerous blind jokes, at the disapproval of one Benjamin Nopper. Her goal this year is for The Red Ledger to finally win the Pacemaker, and nothing will stand in her way. Coming in right at 5’10”, she certainly doesn’t need heels, but she wouldn’t be caught dead without them. Let her leave you with this one piece of advice–keep your heels, head and standards high.
