Mary Kathryn Walt '21 Named Mary Campbell Easel Award Recipient
BGA is pleased to honor Senior Mary Kathryn “MK” Walt with the Mary Campbell Easel Award for the first quarter. MK has been a student at BGA for eight years and a dedicated visual art student throughout her time here. An intriguing topic, her breadth of skills, and an authentic desire to learn and create have produced beautiful works of art for her AP Studio Art portfolio.

About the Mary Campbell Easel Award: Along with the gift of the Mary Campbell Visual Arts Center, Battle Ground Academy’s art department was also fortunate to receive several pieces of furniture and equipment from Mary Campbell’s studio. One of these was her easel. To honor Mary’s memory, it was decided that every quarter, the Visual Arts teachers would review the work of current students and choose a piece of art they feel exemplifies the qualities BGA students strive to achieve: creativity, effort, and quality. The chosen piece receives the Mary Campbell Easel Award and is displayed for the duration of the next quarter.
