The current winter issue of the Frist Art Museum Magazine devoted a two-page spread to an interview featuring Marie-Pia Bonnot ‘19. In it, she talks about her art, her education in the States and France and her Lausanne experience.
Marie-Pia, along with three other IB Visual Arts 2 seniors- Natalie Eslami ‘19, Jenny Rogers ‘19 and Solbok Yi ‘19, have artworks included in the current 2018 Young Tennessee Artists: Selections from Advanced Studio Art Programs exhibit now on display at the Frist Museum of Art in Nashville.
Chosen from a statewide competitive pool of over 800 works of art from Advanced Placement Studio Art and International Baccalaureate Visual Arts classes in Tennessee, the 27 piece exhibit will be on view at the Frist Museum until March 17, 2019. During winter break, the artists were honored at the Frist.
“Young Tennessee Artists is always a wonderful look at the future of the visual arts in our state,” said Frist Center director of education and outreach Anne Henderson. “Two years ago, we received more than 800 submissions from across the state, and the caliber of the art submitted was exceptional. This is a tremendous opportunity not only to recognize student artists but also to salute art teachers across the state who, in so many ways, inspire the work of their talented students.”
With 500 entries from aspiring young artists across the state, Lausanne’s four students represent more than any other school in the West Tennessee region.
