CHATHAM, NJ - For the second straight year, Chatham residents became art critics for a day, voting for the "Best in Show" in 2D and 3D art presented by K-12 students at the School District of the Chathams Art Show held Monday and Tuesday at the Chatham Middle School.

The judged art was limited to Chatham Middle School and Chatham High students. On Monday, Chatham came out and voted for their favorite art pieces and Tuesday the awards were placed next to the artwork for all to see.

The art show was sponsored in part by the Chatham Education Foundation, which supplied the grant that funded the startup materials needed last year.

Chatham High junior Isabel Sitar talks about her "Best in Show" 2D graphic design of her dog "Maisy"

Chatham High freshman Ava Tesoriero could be found seated among the displayed artwork with her hands covered with clay as she demonstrated the fun that can be had with a sculpting wheel.

"I love the high school art programs," the 14-year-old said. "If you really want to get into art, there is a lot to do in the high school.

"(Sculpting) is really relaxing. There are no mistakes that you can make. It is very open to interpretation. Anyone can look at a piece and see it differently. That's what I like about it." 

Those who attended on Monday interpreted Tesoriero's "coiled pot" as a high quality work of art, voting it first place for CHS students in the 3D category.
