Between June 4 and August 17, Holy Name’s Main Entrance will not be open. Additionally, the circle in front of the main building will be inaccessible to traffic at certain times.

For those who need to come to the school’s Main Office this summer, please come up Layor Drive, and park in the teacher’s lot. You can enter using the school’s side entrance.

For those needing access to the athletic facilities (Main and Auxiliary Gyms, Cicerchi Field, Weight Room, etc.), please come up Queens Highway and park in the student parking lot. You can enter using the Main Gym entrance.

Please remember there is no one-way traffic on Layor Drive or Queens Highway during the summer; both streets are open to two-way traffic at all hours until school resumes in August.

Seniors Karen Nemeth & Sarah Sparks Earn 2018 Scholastic Art Awards

Holy Name is proud to announce that two students received recognition after submitting artwork to the 2018 Scholastic Art Awards – Cuyahoga County Region Competition. Student artwork pieces from across the county were considered, with 3,325 submissions being reviewed.

Karen Nemeth ’18 received a Gold Key Award (artwork demonstrating the highest levels of achievement in originality, personal voice and technical skill) for her drawing and illustration titled “The Future,” while also receiving a Silver Key Award (artwork demonstrating achievement worthy of recognition at the regional level) for her printmaking piece, “Acceptance.”

Sarah Sparks ’18 earned an Honorable Mention (artwork demonstrating creative potential) for her mixed media piece, “Spiral Garden.”

Both Karen and Sarah were recognized for these achievements at an award ceremony held at the Cleveland Institute of Art on Saturday, January 13. Karen’s artwork is now on display in CIA’s Reinberger Gallery, with Sarah’s artwork being displayed digitally on monitors in the same gallery. Their artwork will be up through Friday, February 2, and gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday – Thursday; 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Friday; and 12 to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

Karen’s Silver Key Award piece, “Acceptance,” was made during Mrs. Beth Ryan’s College Credit Plus (CCP) Art Foundations class, with her Gold Key Award winning artwork done in last year’s Intermediate Design course. When designing her artwork, Karen is inspired by her daily life struggles. “Artwork helps display emotions and life,” said Karen. “Art comes in many forms, and it is a great way of expressing yourself. I like how universal and versatile it can be.”

Next year, Karen plans to study Studio Art at Kent State University. In the future, she would like to travel and become multilingual.

Sarah’s entry was also created as part of her work in Mrs. Beth Ryan’s CCP Art Foundations course. She grew up with art as a major part of her life, as her mother is a high school art teacher. “I also focus on emotions for art inspiration,” said Sarah. “I like to incorporate shapes and designs from nature into my designs, too.”

After graduation this spring, Sarah plans to study Studio Art, Interior Design or Architecture at The Ohio State University or Kent State University.

The entire Holy Name community congratulates both Karen and Sarah for sharing their talents and creating this beautiful, award-winning artwork!
