Paragon National Bank hosted an art exhibit Tuesday, March 2, for senior art students at St. Agnes Academy. The show featured the art of seven of Janis McCarty’s senior students.
"St. Agnes’ senior art students wow us every year and this year was no exception,” said Robert Shaw, President and CEO of Paragon. “We all look forward to this event each year when we showcase the young ladies’ talent.”
This year’s artists were Kerry Hunt, Chloe Lane, Anne Mason, Taylor McKeever, Nida Pathan, Lauren Robison, and Corie Walker. Each student’s art was displayed on both the first and third floors of Paragon’s Fountain Place office, where it will remain through March. Paragon’s corporate art collection rounded out the exhibit with pieces from renowned local artists Jay Etkin, Rana Rochat, Warren Greene, Pam Cobb, Pamela Hassler, Mary Reed, Twin, Maysey Craddock, Ephraim Urevbu, and sculptor John McIntire.
Since its opening in 2005, Paragon has placed a strong emphasis on “the art of banking.” In addition to displaying local art at each banking center and hosting the St. Agnes art reception each year, Paragon also hosts art from Germantown-area schools each month at the Saddle Creek location.
