The spring exhibition displays artwork from all areas: painting, photography, ceramics, drawing, and digital graphics. Art teachers David Douglas, Liz Vorlicek, Elsabe Dixon, and Junko Pinkowski gathered the best pieces from their students to put into the gallery. A large portion of the these works were submitted to the Scholastic Art Competition to be assessed, and several received high honor awards for their outstanding artwork.
Photography teacher David Douglas commented on the exhibition, “Another beautiful student art exhibition opened over parents weekend in the Ainslie Art Center and Angie Newman Johnson Gallery. Huge crowds on Friday night were treated to the outstanding work of our young artists. A variety of work from beginners to advanced student work in drawing, painting, ceramics,design and photography was featured and the show was a real celebration of these amazing young artists. I am always amazed at the outstanding work our students do and it’s a real treat to see it all displayed together in such a beautiful setting. Congratulations artists!”
The exhibition will remain on display through the end of the school year.
