Spring 2017 Season: Arts Highlights

In late May D-E’s Swartley Gallery hosted the 22nd Annual Senior Spotlight Exhibit. This year’s juried show featured Julianna Davis ’17, Adrian Evans ’17, Rebecca Ho ’17, Joel Lee ’17, Jessica Rice ’17, Daniela Solovey ’17, Talia Stewart ’17, and Scott Sue ’17. Visual arts faculty member Caitlyn Young noted, “The space was filled with intricate illustrations, mixed media collages, acrylic portraits, computer manipulated drawings and photographs, wheel-thrown pots, and hand-built ceramic sculptures. The exhibit was a wide range of work representative of the inspiring, innovative and exciting process happening in the classrooms throughout Swartley. Congratulations to this year’s Best of Show winner Rebecca Ho, for her stunning wheel-thrown pots and ceramic sculptures.”

Within our visual arts exhibit spaces and on our performing arts stages, D-E students’ exceptional artistic endeavors were evident at the close of the 2016-17 academic year. Lower School students showcased Shakespeare in dramatic fashion and those who are involved in the LS string ensemble program capably kicked off the annual Orchestra Extravaganza concert. Upper School musicians Maxine Musto ’17 (violin) and Elliot Roman ’17 (flute) demonstrated why they were chosen as the 2017 Concerto Competition winners when each were also featured in the Extravaganza. The Middle School Spring Arts Festival paid a tribute to master entertainer Walt Disney, thanks to the Show Choir and MS Handbells ensembles. And the 60+ students from all three divisions who participated in the School’s private music lessons program performed a wonderful series of recitals in Hajjar Auditorium.
