WEST HARTFORD — The artwork and poetry of Kingswood Oxford middle school students, along with art from Watkinson and Renbrook School students, was selected to the exhibition, called “Our Work, Our Choice,” said an email from the school.

It is so named because students — rather than adults — decide which pieces from each school will be included. English and art students then write explanatory labels for the art, which are also part of the exhibition.

The final result of this cross-curricular project creates a wonderful exhibition and collaboration and offers the students the opportunity to express themselves and craft their creative voice through a variety of mediums.

This year’s Kingswood artists are:

Nico Bromley ’25 of Hebron

Olivia Gordon ’24 of Avon

Eleanor Farquhar ’26 of West Hartford

Chelsea O’Donnell ’24 of West Hartford

Norah Pond ’26 of Windsor

Sophia Radmanovich ’24 of West Hartford

Charlotte Sorenson ’24 of West Hartford

Kelly Stepnowski ‘24 of South Glastonbury

Erin Westfall ’24 of Bristol

Fin Zeytoonjian ’24 of Hartford

The “Our Work, Our Choice” exhibition was started in the late 1970s by art teachers from Kingswood Oxford, Renbrook School, and Watkinson who wanted to showcase their students’ artwork as well as nurture the visual arts community among independent middle schools.
