Paragon Bank is currently displaying artwork from Evangelical Christian School students in its Saddle Creek Banking Center (7600 Poplar Avenue). The bank worked with Anne Smith, the school’s art teacher, to coordinate the exhibit that will be on display through November 30.
“Our employees and clients enjoy viewing the new artwork each month,” said Robert Shaw, chief executive officer at Paragon Bank. “It’s a unique way to showcase the talent of the children in our community, and we invite everyone to stop by and browse the paintings this month.”
The art, created by third grade students, was inspired by Isaiah 60:1 and Georges Seurat, a French Neo-Impressionist painter. The paintings feature pointillism, a technique developed by Seurat, in which small dots of color are applied in patterns to form an image.
Student artists include Ava Becker, Naomi Betapudi, Carrington Clay, Lily Curtright, Whit Dean, Grant Evans, Joseph Hamilton, Lucy Holton, Lexi Levatino, Lindsey Mannella, Travis Perez, Natalie Regel, Nash Rendall, Rachel Slater, William Bauer, Susanna Brink, Lucas Cox, Andi Coulson, Riley Davis, Lily Higginbotham, Ava Howell, JoJo Lei, Emily McAdams, Bo Orcholski, Campbell Pallera, Scarlett Patterson, Emma Tetleton and Claire Todd.
