Davis County High School hosts art show

Art teacher Lory Chaplin and students preparing for Davis County High School Art Show.

The Davis County High School Art Show was held in the school's cafeteria on Thursday evening.

Local art students got the chance to show off the projects they have been working on all semester to faculty, family and friends. A retired art teacher came in after hours to judge the show. Student Shelby Logsdon said winning first place in the "Letters" category took her by total surprise.

"It looks like a swan," Logsdon explained. "It has a beak and everything and on the back, I put inspirational quotes all over, and I actually got first place for it. That was just extremely exciting."

Logsdon also took 2nd place in the "Acrylic Painting" category.

"I always tell my students, even if you didn't get a ribbon, it doesn't mean you're art isn't incredible because the judge said there are so many good things that it's really hard to pick," Davis County High School teacher Lory Chaplin said.

The art show judge selected a 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winner for each of the 15 categories. A total of 95 students had their work on display.
