Winners of the Dawson County High School Winter Art Show were announced Friday.

Senior Shelby Sage directed "The City of Ember," a salute to "steampunk," which she describes as "sci-fi in the Victorian Age, where everything ran on steam engines."

Art teacher Chris Gore said he was pleased with the winter show, which was on display last week at the high school, as well as Sage's piece.

"It was really marvelous how she developed the idea after she showed me what she wanted to do," he said. "Shelby did an excellent job leading us into a new territory. I'm very pleased."

Sage said the level of art produced for the show was impressive.

"We have some very powerful pieces," she said.

Most of the works are produced in art class.

"That's the criteria. The students must have one art class to participate in the show," Sage said.

Others are taken home and developed for extra credit.

"We have a lot of amazing work," she said.

Students also produce a spring art show.

"The spring show, which will come out in April, will be directed by Krista Barnicoat," Gore said.
