Absurd, baroque, neorealism, surreal, and bizarre are all used to describe Federico Fellini’s film style, but none of them quite capture the true essence of his films. His famous and unique style of storytelling, which was largely autobiographical, blended reality and fantasy and was so distinct that it became known as Felliniesque.
Thirty-eight students in grades 9-12 from Fredericksburg, Spotsylvania, Stafford and Westmoreland county particpated in this year's show. The talent is immense, the art is phenomenal and difficult choices were made. Local artist, Johnny Johnson, generously donated his time to judge the grades 11 and 12 contestants. Those artists experienced the other side of an art show and were the judges for those in grades 9-10.
Best in Show was awarded to senior, Katy Shepard for "Roman Myths of Love" (shown above)

Through good fortune, opportunity, and foreign travel, my art career has taken various paths.
A daughter of union organizers, Mary grew up in Greenwich Village and while only a teenager sang backup for the legendary Pete Seeger. Today, her clear, warm vocals on songs written by Seeger and Bob Dylan remind us of the softer aspects of 1960s social struggle. "If I Had a Hammer," "Where Have All the Flowers Gone" and "Blowin' in the Wind" are still favorites for youth groups.
