Shuey takes top award in student art competition

CROSSVILLE — Hailee Shuey, a senior at Cumberland County High School, has taken top prize in the Fall 2012 Young Artist Program for her watercolor "Light Moves."

The painting is the featured cover of the Arts Education Partnership Fall 2012 National Forum program. In addition to a monetary prize, Shuey was also presented a framed copy of the program during a recognition ceremony in September.

Shuey became interested in art at an early age, joining an art club in school. She's interested in works of realism, though notes her work does not always take on the realism style.

"As I create, I just let creativity flow and 'art just happens.'" she said. "I like traditional-style things and nature scenes. I try to put that in what I'm drawing and painting, and it comes out abstract sometimes. I like color contrasts and I like things to pop."

The Young Artist Award was established in 2009 to recognize and honor the talent and accomplishment of students. It seeks to develop leadership skills and build self-confidence among young people, to celebrate and foster educational and artistic excellence in schools and communities, and recognize the network of support that contributes to student success. The competition is open to students age 12 through 18.

This year, students were asked to create an original work of art that responded to, reflected, or was inspired by the Leonardo da Vinci quote, "Study the science of art. Study the art of science. Realize that everything connects to everything else."

Shuey's work is a still life scene filled with geometric solids, boxes, a lamp and a skull. She drew the still life, focusing on the contour lines of the objects, and repeated designs to create visual vibration. She went over the pencil lines with black pen and used a wet-in-wet painting technique to blend colors together.

"This picture shows a connection of motion/movement," Shuey wrote in the program. "The skull is connected to anatomy and science. When color blending, I thought about the science involved in producing new colors. As I added masking fluid and salt, it was a scientific experimentation of color lifting. As I painted, I thought about the reflective qualities of certain surfaces as light hits them and how it's relative to physics."
