WVIA Artist of the Week: Giavonna Fiore

By: Micah Mullen/Staff Artist

Giavonna Fiore, high school junior, was recently chosen as Artist of the Week to represent the arts of Blue Ridge on World Via (WVIA). WVIA is a TV and radio station that airs PBS, which chooses a school for each week to show the talent of one art student and one music student. On January 9th, 2019, Fiore went to the studio to film her feature that is expected to be aired around April. Multiple students have been interviewed in the past (see WVIA ).

This opportunity has left Fiore feeling very humble. It’s amazing that her work will be aired on TV in the spring, and when asked if she wanted to accept the offer, she was very excited.

In total, Fiore was allowed to present five originals.

The last one is a portrait representing Cupid’s arrow and how emotions can leave you blind to the pain.

Her pieces of art are one of a kind and very thought out, putting her heart and mind into her work. “I was very grateful to have the experience and had a lot of fun,” says Fiore.

The feature showing Fiore will be aired soon on PBS.

Micah isn’t your typical Senior you see, she’s different. Describing her would have to be shy yet bold and artistic; especially artistic. She is practicing in the tattoo feild and works hard to get better and better at various techniques. Micah plans to graduate and go far in her life. She sure is adventurous as well, always up to getting out of state.
