The 2015 Runnels Art Show held April 26 in the school gym featured more than 2,000 pieces of original artwork created by students in preschool through high school.
For the event, the gym was converted into an upscale art gallery with paintings, drawings, sculptures and multi-media art on display.
Elementary and junior and senior high students viewed the artwork and voted for Student’s Choice winners in grades 1-12 prior to the show.
Awards also were presented in the categories of Judge’s Choice, for seventh through 12th grades; Headmaster’s Choice; Principal’s Choice; Assistant Principal’s Choice; and Librarian’s Choice.
Artwork winning Judge’s Choice awards will be on display in the foyer of the Gladys Hague Runnels Theatre on the school’s South Harrell’s Ferry Road campus for one year. Artwork earning Headmaster’s Choice, Principal’s Choice, Assistant Principal’s Choice and Librarian’s Choice awards will be on permanent display in administrative offices and libraries at Runnels.
