MADISON – Skilled students is representing Bob Jones High School well in three art expositions that stretch from Huntsville to Montgomery to Washington, D.C.

Bob Jones artists’ work has been recognized for Youth Art Month at Huntsville Museum of Art, Alabama Visual Arts Achievement Awards and the Congressional Art Competition.

“Bob Jones was well represented at the opening of Youth Art Month at the Huntsville Art Museum,” art teacher Robin Lakso said. Jennifer Norton also teaches art at Bob Jones.

Work by Samantha Humphrey and Michael McGinley has been on exhibit at the museum. Humphrey is enrolled in advance-placement art and serves as treasurer of Bob Jones’ chapter of National Art Honor Society. She acknowledged fellow classmates and Lakso for their collaboration with their design.

“I was thrilled! I had no idea that I would even get close to winning,” Humphrey told “Patriot Pages.”

In other honors, the Alabama State Council for the Arts sponsors Visual Arts Achievement, a state-level award. Lauren Pennington and Katherine Rogers from Bob Jones received blue ribbons for Visual Art Achievement. 

Pennington was shocked to receive Lakso’s call with the good news. “There were so many entries, I didn’t think mine had that big of a chance of getting placed there,” Pennington told “Patriot Pages.” Currently, she is enrolled in AP art and has been participating in Bob Jones art program since her freshman year.

“Student work will move from the museum to Montgomery, where the work will be displayed with works from around the state of Alabama,” Lakso said.

“The Congressional Art Competition is time-honored. Congressman Mo Brooks and his wife Martha presented the awards. The winning students’ work will hang in the Cannon Tunnel in the U.S. Capitol in Washington D.C. for one year,” Lakso said.

Claudia Waddell’s work, “Don’t Cry Over Spilled Coffee,” will represent Bob Jones for the congressional exhibit. “I had to work a lot faster than I normally do in order to finish my piece by the contest’s deadline, so I wasn’t really expecting anything to happen,” Waddell told “Patriot Pages.”
