Art is everything to Morgan Bair, a graduate of Spring Grove Area High School, who was the 2017 recipient of the Hanover Area Arts Guild $1000 Scholarship. She received the award at the annual membership meeting of the Arts Guild on June 26th, 2017.
"Art has always been a part of my life.", Bair said. "It's a fun way to explain myself, to relax. It's always there when I need it." It's something she plans to pursue further at the Indiana University of Pennsylvania, specifically in interior design and interior architecture. Her choice of interior design is tied to her long-term goal: she wants to improve handicapped accessible designs for buildings. "Not only will being an interior design major give me the opportunity to make a building look beautiful, but as an architectural design student, I will learn to make a building functional and safe."
She's already gained some experience. Morgan completed indoor and outdoor renderings of the pool at the Hanover Country Club. That led to a similar job: renderings of the Tech Building for the Spring Grove Area School District. Also in Spring Grove, Morgan is the president of the National Art Honors Society, and recently started oil painting. "It's something different. It's something unique to me.", she explained.
Sorry we don't have many pieces to show, she's been busy!
