Brookwood art on display

THOMASVILLE — In the lower level of the Thomasville Center for the Arts, Brookwood School presents an “American Art Exhibit,” produced by students from kindergarten through the 8th grade. The exhibit, organized by Maureen Harrer, who chairs Brookwood’s Art Department, and Karen Stauffer, Brookwood's Lower School art teacher, continues through Friday at least, and is open weekdays, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Student-created clay face jugs are examples of the kinds of jugs made by slaves during the mid-1800s to scare away evil spirits.

Paintings, created in the style of artist John James Audubon and others, depict American birds and animals in their natural habitats.

Student artists made reproductions of copper plates while learning about the images and symbols found on plates and other objects recovered in burial mounds throughout the Southeast.

Coil pots, clay vessels and illustrations of communication created on animal hides are additional examples of the students learning history as they produced their artwork.

Georgia O’Keefe’s landscapes and paintings of flowers were the inspiration for works by seventh grade student artists. Third graders studied the spiritual messages in Edward Hicks’ renderings of “The Peaceable Kingdom” before making their exhibit entries.

Kindergarten and first-grade students were inspired by Theodore Geissel’s Dr. Seuss characters, as seen in Brookwood’s production of “Seussical” Feb. 7-9.
