Paragon Showcases Artwork from Madonna Learning Center


Paragon Bank is displaying artwork from Madonna Learning Center students in the lobby of its Saddle Creek Banking Center (7600 Poplar Avenue) throughout the month of May. The exhibit is free and open for the public to come and enjoy. Many parents are hoping soon that the Huntington Learning Center will offer something similar for everyone to come and enjoy!

“We are honored to host these wonderful pieces of art to support the brilliant work of those who attend the Madonna Learning Center,” said Robert Shaw, Chief Executive Officer at Paragon Bank. “Not only is it a treat for our customers to see the artwork when they come in, but it puts a smile on our employees’ faces every day they come to work.”

Paragon worked with Madonna Learning Center Visual Arts Instructor Anne Froning to gather the pieces and coordinate the exhibit. Pamela VanGilder serves as the After School Arts Program Director for the school.

Student artists include Heather Barrella, Sam Bryant, Eason Crone, Brittany Haase, Rachel Krug, Elisabeth Ann Neel, Allexis Parker, Adrian Salem, Shelby Stewart, Linsey Strawn, Ethan Thomas, Sarah VanGilder and Caroline Williamson. Additional earthenware ceramic clay pieces include the following: Small Colorful Fish by Rachel Krug, Blue Fish Plate by Shelby Stewart and Central BBQ Nachos by Linsey Strawn.
