Student Name: Taylor Sanford
Grade: Grade 12
Artist Statement: Back in October I was struck with inspiration to create a different kind of photograph than what I am usually drawn to creating. I ventured to a familiar place by Hopedale pond where; across from this pond stands an old mill. I explored photographing landscapes this day, allowing space to experiment with subject matter. I let myself explore the natural landscape and let the environment inspire me.

Student Name: Margaux Lewis
Grade: Grade 12
Artist Statement: I’m tired of these walls. This pace feels even smaller than it is. Every day, I spend an estimated 20 hours in this single, small room. It serves as my art studio, my classroom, my office, my reading space, and my bedroom. I have become so intimately familiar with this space during my 2020 quarantine, and have learned to adjust my life to fit within this room.

Artist Statement: This piece explores the unknown world of what goldfish may be dreaming about each night.

In this piece, they are depicted whirling around above the stream while leaving all their worries behind in the water.

Student Name: Hannah Goff
Grade: Grade 11
Artist Statement: For this project, I wanted to portray a frightening and mysterious mood. One of my favorite movie genres is horror and I was inspired to create my own eerie story through my photographs. I drew inspiration from the photographer Joshua Hoffine, and the movies "IT", and "Us". I want to challenge myself and take the viewer on a quest to solve a mystery through my photographs.

Student Name: Julia Landman
Grade: Grade 12
Artist Statement: My images were taken in abandoned bear cages. I chose this space because I had taken photos there over the summer, so I was familiar with the space. I was trying to convey an ominous tone. I wanted to focus on the cages to emphasize the lack of freedom that the bears had.

Student Name: Carolyn Parker
Grade: Grade 12
Artist Statement: My favorite type of photography is landscape photography and capturing nature’s beauty. I liked how creative I could get with composition and deep depth of field. I captured the beautiful Maine sea coast which is a special place for me and my family. I was able to take pictures at angles I wouldn’t usually and I got to experiment a lot with how I took the pictures which I enjoyed.

Student Name: Kashish Singh
Grade: Grade 12
Artist Statement: This raku-fired sculpture built by hand is inspired by the sea. I looked at coral formations, barnacles, and the interior surface of abalone shells to create this piece. I then applied luster glazes that reduced in the firing process that are highly coppered mimicking the highly iridescent inner layer of the abalone shell.

Organization or School Affiliation: Franklin High School

Student Name: Millie Chalk
Grade: Grade 11
Artist Statement: In this teapot, my goal was to provoke a sense of mystery, enlightenment, and curiosity in the audience. To do this, I deconstructed the original shape and function of a teapot using nature and colors like forest green with hints of burgundy to portray a magical and woodsy feel. Finally, the use of metallics creates an ethereal feeling making the viewer wonder what magic occurred in this forest.

Organization or School Affiliation: Franklin High School

Student Name: Katelyn Sawyer
Grade: Grade 10
Artist Statement: This tea set was made by hand using the slab technique. I wanted to make new shapes in clay exploring a square form, vertical lines, and bright colors. We see these design characteristics in the handles and in my approach to glazing where I layered multiple brown colors together finishing with a green patina and transparent white; creating a multidimensional surface that’s fresh and modern.

Artist Statement: The tragic death of George Floyd ignited civil protests across the world. While some countries protested to show their support with the United States, others protested against police brutality in their own nations. When I was given an assignment to focus on texture, I decided to focus on different types of black hair while also showing a peaceful protest of the Black Lives Matter movement.
