On Monday, March 13th, Saint Stephen’s held the opening ceremony of their 19th annual Alexi Tucker Memorial Art Show in the Russell Building of the upper school. With hours of work during and outside school, Ms. Johnson and Ms. Grady put together the art show in a matter of weeks. Every year, art students enter a variety of work, ranging from ceramic pieces to photographs. Each student puts in three interims of hard work in order to produce the countless pieces that are displayed in the Alexi Tucker Gallery.

The gallery and show were named after a former SSES student Alexi Tucker, an adept art student who attended Saint Stephen’s until 1997, when she sadly passed away in a fatal car accident. Her family contributes to the gallery and also helps the yearly art shows. In her remembrance, this art show serves to remind the Saint Stephen’s community to remember the arts department and all of its strong work. This year the art show was a success yet again. With countless parents, friends and students attending, the art show was filled with crowd favorites and the proud work of an array of students. This year, the following students received awards:

To all those who won this year, congratulations. The show was truly spectacular with only the best from Saint Stephen’s students. With grades 9-12 on display, everything from photography to ceramics can be seen in the Alexi Tucker Gallery. A special thanks to the Tucker family for their continued support of the show, the Langeneger family for their yearly award, and to the jurors. For those who weren’t able to attend the show, stop by the art hallway to see some fantastic art!

Also, come to the Manatee Performing Arts Center Monday, April 10 from 5-7pm for the Visual Arts Conservatory Distinction Candidates Show for some more amazing work!
