Farragut Middle School students and their families turned out to view the students’ art works during the annual FMS Art Show.

Presented by Farragut Arts Council, the show and reception, Tuesday, April 14, in Farragut Town Hall, displayed talents of budding artists and musicians, as the school’s string ensemble performed for the crowd.

“I think it’s pretty cool seeing the different degrees of art,” FMS student Ellyx Martinez said. “I really like all the different types of art there are.”

“It’s a great exhibit,” Sandy Dean, Farragut Arts Council member, said. “There’s a wide variety of art. They have a lot of different concepts and medium, pastels and watercolors to pen and ink, sculptures and masks.”

One parent, Mary Lin, said she came because the works of two of her daughters, Abby and Katie Lin, were being displayed, and her daughter, Emily, was performing the violin with FMS Orchestra’s string ensemble.

“All of my daughters have something in the show,” she said.
