A can’t-miss show

Dear Editor,

I have just come from the Glenwood Springs High School all-school art show, where I have spent the last three hours judging an astounding volume of student work with eight of my talented artistic peers. I have to admit that this morning I was thinking of many things that I would rather do on this glorious day. In retrospect, being a small part of the show and absorbing the excitement of youthful expression will be the highlight of my day.

The talent and the promise of the student work was indeed inspiring and I recommend that you get over to the high school and check the show out. The most beautiful and moving part of the show, however, does not hang on the pegboard or grace the display table. The undisputed “best of show” is Anne Brooks, the queen of the high school art department.

I have always been impressed by her sanity and creativity when teaching and organizing hundreds of students. What struck me most today were her tears and emotions at the judges’ choices. It is clear that she lives her profession. We are indeed lucky to have her in the artistic driver’s seat!
