The National Art Honor Society celebrated Hampton Roads Academy artists during the 22nd Annual Juried Art Show held in the Stacy Philips ‘03 Fine Art Gallery.
Thank you to Christine Contakes (HRA US Visual Art Faculty) for organizing this beautiful exhibition and artist Wil Swink '99 for judging the work. Not only did he share his time and expertise with us as a judge, but also created and built a frame for a reproduction of his work, Brave New World, as a generous gift to HRA. In addition, Wil came to speak to 48 honor society members at an NAHS meeting and told them the story of his art.
Our most heartfelt congratulations to our artists who continue to develop and share their talent with our Hampton Roads Academy community!
