17th Annual High School Art Exhibit

The 17th Annual Regional High School Art Exhibition is now on display in the lobby of the Core Building at Saint Joseph's College. It features art objects from students at six area high schools.

Pointillism always seems to be represented at these shows, and this year there are a couple of attractive examples, including this example from a drawing with markers from a North Newton student.
 
Rensseler Central had a number of drawings showing craftsmanship, including this fruity picture that was done in mixed media.
  
The watercolor below shows skill.
  
The same Rensselaer student did the picture below, but with colored pencils. Time has long been a theme in still lives--the mortality of man, the shortness of life. I wonder if that is the message the student who did this drawing wanted to send.
  
This drawing of a beetle looks like it could be an illustration in an entomology book. It was done by a student from South Newton.
  
There were several crocheted items from Kankakee Valley. Is it art, or is it craft, or is there any difference?
  
The faux culinary art from students at North White utilized painted toilet paper over forms. I thought that was both funny and appropriate.
  
Renseelaer Central students did these slab pots. The one on the top almost looked like it was thrown.
  
The reception for the exhibit is on Sunday, February 21 from 1:30 until 3:00 PM with the awards ceremony at 2:00.
