The artwork of CHS seniors Emma Siritzky and Hannah Hansen were both displayed in the Montgomery County High School Photography Show at the Washington ArtWorks and Washington School of Photography Gallery, with the opening reception on Feb. 5 and the exhibition lasting until Feb. 26. Siritzky placed second and Hansen received an honorable mention.

According to Daily Campello Art News, the exhibition features photography work from Montgomery County high school students and their instructors, giving hundreds of high school students the opportunity to display their work professionally for the first time.

According to photography teacher Amy Gilbert, the show was open to all Montgomery County art students, and there were more than 150 entries from around 15 different schools.

“I took [the picture] in Aspen, CO over the summer,” Hansen said. “It was really cool to see my work appreciated and that other people liked it too.”
