Easton High's Gabrielle Lambeth Featured in First Lady's Art Exhibit
Easton High School Junior Gabrielle Lambeth was honored as one of a few select student artists to be featured in the First Lady’s Spring Student Artwork Exhibition at the House of Delegates in Annapolis. Gabby’s 24x36 print, titled Santorini, is unique in that it was created with a digital pen using the industry-standard program Adobe Illustrator. Gabby learned how to apply her artistic skill in this program while studying with Mrs. Garnette Hines in the Interactive Media Production Pathway at Easton High School. The Interactive Media Production Career and Technology pathway encompasses digital imaging, illustration, animation, film and web design. Gabby is currently in the advanced course of this program, and is looking forward to continuing her education in design or a related field. The piece on display, Santorini, was inspired by a photograph Gabby took in Santorini, Greece this past summer on an educational tour of Italy and Greece with Mrs. Hines and 15 other students. Gabby’s digital Photoshop painting St. Michaels is also currently featured in the Superintendent’s Art Gallery. Last year Gabby had an opportunity to collaborate with local museum designer and Interactive Media advisory board member Pat Rogan, creating posters on the Hill Community Project. The posters were on display on Heritage day at the Chesapeake Maritime Museum. “Gabby is fully invested in sharing her skills with the community and also sharing her experience with future designers,” says Mrs. Hines. “She has been an ambassador for the Interactive Media program on several occasions, visiting Easton Elementary and Middle School, and has also taught a digital media class at the Academy of Art, Easton.” Mrs. Hines adds that Gabby’s exceptional portfolio is a reflection of her passion for design, impressive work ethic, and willingness to embrace all opportunities that come her way.
