Charcoal drawing by Connor ReillyAt the annual Fluvanna County High School art show (May 6), a variety of art students emerged in different categories featuring some traditional mediums and more contemporary art forms. In past shows, judges from the Fluvanna Art Association saw more paintings, often picking a painting as Best in Show; but in the last few years, pencil and charcoal have been the winning mediums, showing the students’ solid grasp of anatomy and understanding of the medium itself.

Out of the over 100 students that participated this year, Reanna DeVarennes won for her pencil drawing of a child hugging an elderly veteran with the American flag as a backdrop. Not yet a senior, DeVarennes has been a rising star. She is not timid in her pencil work as some are, with washed out tones, but her use of strong contrast and flawless execution of detail is what made her piece stand out from the rest. She also won first in her category of pencil drawing.

It was a tough choice for the judges who also praised Connor Reilly’s charcoal/Conte crayon work which was striking in its sharp contrasts and dramatic appeal. Both captured their subjects’ emotions, highlighting their awareness and feeling. Add a comment
