Red Bank Student Taylor Stott Has Photography Exhibit Saturday

Friday, January 11, 2013

Red Bank High School and the Association for Visual Arts present "Focused on Taylor Stott" a photography exhibit by a Red Bank student, Taylor Stott. 

A reception will be held on Saturday at The Landis Gallery, from 3-5 p.m., 30 Frazier Avenue, Chattanooga.

Organizers said, "The photographic art of Taylor Stott explores and reflects on an outstanding senior at Red Bank High School." 

Following a rich tradition, Taylor’s mother, brother, and sister attended Red Bank. Slated to attend University of Tennessee, Taylor is a JROTC sponsor, a scholastic excellence winner, an All American Cheerleader, and captain of her cheerleading team. 

"Each photograph is a deeply personal and powerful documentation of her impressive high school career. Having students express themselves through images that tell their own stories provide a rare opportunity to view real teens today."    

“Taylor’s images are heartfelt and authentic. She will be able to look at these photographs years from now and be as proud of her work as I am to be her teacher,” said Mrs. Belknap, Red Bank art teacher.

“Taylor is an incredible student because she is a prodigious worker and has a generous character,” said Mrs. Weiss, Red Bank math teacher.
