Art students create works for 10th ‘Art of Healing’ contest

Lexington, SC - Multiple Lexington District One students created award-winning art for Lexington Medical Center’s 10th annual “Art of Healing.” The Columbia Museum of Art cosponsors the juried art competition open to all Lexington County high school students.

Using the mediums of paint, photography and sculpture, students depicted their interpretation of healing and health in their many forms. Several students drew inspiration from loved ones’ health challenges and recovery process.

Winners from Lexington District One include River Bluff High’s Alyssa Griffin in first place for “A Broken Family” and RBHS’s Josef Ivory in third place for “In My Own Skin.” RBHS’s Grace Carson, with “Natural Reflections,” and Morgan Wooley, with “Break Free,” both received Honorable Mention.

The Judge’s Choice award went to RBHS’s Morgan Slice for “I’m Sorry,” while Sarah Claas from White Knoll High won CEO’s Choice with “A Year to Hold Onto.”

Art teachers from Lexington County high schools helped choose artwork to enter in the competition. Award-winning fine artist Michael Story judged the entries and selected the winners.
