Student work on display at the Frist Art Museum

The Frist Art Museum invited teens to submit their artwork for Teens Take the Frist! exhibition. Artworks in a variety of mediums created by emerging artists from Cheatham, Davidson, Robertson, Rutherford, Sumner, Williamson, and Wilson Counties were displayed at the Frist and in the online gallery from June 18 to Sept. 5, 2021. Three Harpeth Hall students had work highlighted in the exhibition this summer. Congratulations to Allie Cunningham '23, Kiran Dhilon '23, and Eleanor Taylor '22 for having works in the Teens Take the Frist exhibitions.

"My color pencil piece, 1961 Jaguar Etype Series 1: British Racing Green, depicts said car sitting in my driveway on the day it was to be loaded into a trailer and driven away to its new owner. I was absolutely heartbroken; my father and I loved to take the car on leisurely drives throughout Leipers Fork and Natchez Trace as escapes from the house when COVID-19 was ever present in the Summer of 2020. Although I only realized the monumental amount of appreciation I had for the car when my father announced its sale, the joyrides associated with it brought me closer to my father and sparked my growing passion for classic cars," said Kiran Dhilon.

Hidden beneath lush greenery, a miniature world resides in this piece. Mushroom hideaways peek from shrubbery, as fantasy pulls one from reality to explore the lives of the creatures we cannot see . . .
