Paragon National Bank announced that its Saddle Creek branch (7600 Poplar Avenue) will showcase art pieces from Dogwood Elementary School students now through January. The Germantown grade school’s display is the fourth student exhibit hosted this year by Paragon, which also featured monthly art installations from Houston Middle School, Bodine School and St. Louis Catholic School.
“It’s remarkable to see the work that local students are creating under the tutelage of their art teachers,” said Robert Shaw, Chief Executive Officer of Paragon. “We invite everyone to take a moment to visit our Saddle Creek Banking Center to see the depth of talent that these young artists possess.”
Paragon partnered with Dogwood Elementary art teachers Dotty Coulson, Aimee Jones and Norma Powell to select and display artwork created by 27 students. The inspired artwork was created using various mediums including chalk pastels, oil pastels, watercolor and tempera paint. In addition, students used printmaking techniques to create the fall leaf projects and the collaged compositions were constructed with cut or torn paper.
The artwork on display throughout December was created by Abby Acuff, Zach Broadhurst, Lucy Cychowski, Alex Eoff, Cassidy Fendley, Virginia Folse, Jannes Graffelman, Chandler Harrison, Haneen Jaber, Addison Linville, Austin Nellessen, Kristine Roberts, Easyn Secrist, Emersyn Sells.
In January, Paragon will display artwork created by Billy Freeman, Avani Garde, Carson Hanna, Sarah Vance Harrison, Jaehee Lee, Ethan May, Emma Oppenheim, Lotanna Oraedu, Alexandra Rivers, William Ruan, Elizabeth Smith, Adam Williams and Zachary Yenser.
