Harford County Public Schools Represented in Art Exhibits in Annapolis


Student work featured in The First Lady’s Art Gallery and the Treasury Exhibit

Two Harford County Public Schools (HCPS) 2018 graduates have original art work on display in Maryland’s First Lady Yumi Hogan’s bi-annual exhibition of student artwork at The House of Delegates Gallery Space. Elizabeth Moorman, a graduate of Fallston High School, and Rebecca Mechura, a graduate of Bel Air High School, are featured in the exhibit.

Elizabeth’s piece in the exhibit, from her senior year at Fallston High School, is an acrylic painting of a wave-washed beach with feet in the sand. Her art teacher at Fallston High School was Ms. Andrea Sauer. Rebecca’s work, also from her senior year, includes two small drawings of a swimmer done in gray scale markers. Her art teacher at Bel Air High School was Ms. Rebecca Will.

First Lady Hogan will host an opening reception for the student artists, their families, and their teachers on Monday, October 1, from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. at The House of Delegates Gallery Space. The exhibition will be adjudicated, and three awards will be given for outstanding accomplishments in visual arts. All student artwork will be on display until spring 2019.

In addition, three HCPS students have works displayed at the Maryland State Treasurer’s Office. The Fall Treasury Exhibit features the work of Franklin Vasquez, Emma Flanary, and Stephanie Leuschner, all three juniors at Joppatowne High School.

Franklin’s piece is two colorful bubble photos; Emma’s is a foreshortened hand; and Stephanie’s is a scratch board dog. Their art teachers at Joppatowne High School are Ms. Beth Davis and Ms. Cynthia Hendrick.

Artwork in the Treasury Exhibit will be on display in both the first and second floor hallways of the Maryland State Treasurer’s Office until spring 2019 and can be viewed during normal business hours.
