Marie Murphy Students’ Work Featured in Photography Exhibition

On a Saturday in mid-September, Aaron Galleries in Glenview hosted a photography exhibition in which the work of four Marie Murphy School students was featured.  Eighth-graders Kate Carter, Regina Madanguit, Megan Martinez and Mabel Salgado, all residents of Wilmette, had exceeded the expectations of their creative technology teacher, Dave Hoffheimer, when he assigned the class the task of photographing subjects reflected on a separate surface.  Creative technology is an electronic art class that encourages students to see the world in new and different ways.  Mr. Hoffheimer said, “These girls truly present themselves as artists, and their work is exceptional.”  He adds, “Kate, Regina, Megan and Mabel found their subjects in reflections and used photography for expression.”  District Superintendent Dr. Kevin Jauch said, “The exhibition would not have been nearly as successful without the support of Jan Marion, of the H. Marion Framing Studio in Edens Plaza, who not only discounted the frames and mats the students used, but also mounted the work.”  It has been one of Avoca School District 37’s goals to partner with community members for events such as this photography exhibition.
