Four students have their artwork selected for elite exhibit

Four gifted student artists at Bridgewater-Raritan High School were accepted into a prestigious exhibition.

The artworks of Sharanya Ram, Alexandra Go-Miranda, Jennifer Nui and Amelia Ludwig were selected to be included in the 2024 National Art Honor Society/New Jersey Art Honor Society Juried Art Exhibition.

According to Sarah Nassan, an Art Teacher and the National Art Honor Society Advisor at Bridgewater-Raritan High School, the National Art Education Association received a record 2,782 submissions for the 2024 National Art Honor Society/New Jersey Art Honor Society Juried Art Exhibition.

Ms. Nassan reported that 125 artworks were selected for inclusion by a panel of arts educators. 

Here are the artworks of the four Bridgewater-Raritan students in that field of 125.

Sharanya, who is a senior, painted her artwork that is titled "Self Portrait in the Heat.”

She photographed herself in the sun and then painted her portrait.

“I emphasize colors to do my acrylic painting,” Sharanya said about her painting that featured the colors blue, orange,ge and yellow in the background.

Alexandra, who is a junior, revealed her reason behind painting “A Needlessly Complicated Dive Into a Teenage Girl’s Heart.”

“I did my piece in November and it was a reflection on how I was feeling at the time,’’ Alexandra said. “ I was trying to find someone who loves me and understands my needs”

She continued to explain the painting.

“The direct thoughts are the two hands coming apart and a failure to commit. And the open letter in the background were thoughts to not waste time on me. I can dwell on a negative feeling and express that through art.”

Alexandra did add:

“My view has since changed and there are people in my life who care and are willing to be patient with me.”

Jennifer, a senior, explained her artwork, “My Space.”

“I was inspired by a picture I took of my dog to convey a homely feeling and the dog basking in the sunlight,” she said. “ I delivered my message with  vibrant colors such as red.’’


Amelia, who is a senior, spoke about her product, “Girl’s Night Out.”

“The painting is a day after a night out and my room is a mess,” she said.  The bright colors (red, green, blue, purple) break out what way a fun night out.’
