2012 Regional High School Art Exhibit

The 2012 Regional High School Art Exhibit is on display in the lobby of the SJC Core Building until March 2. Most of the nearby high schools seem to be represented.
I was struck by this painting done by a Tri-County student. It is painted on a surface made of 42 old floppy disks (the second generation, the ones that actually were not floppy). Is it a picture of the ultimate computer geek? And do high school students today remember even the non-floppy floppy disks?
I liked the whimsey of this picture from a student at South Newton.
These baskets from West Central students were made from old magazines. I am sure our distant ancestors would have used that material for their basketry if it had been available.
I thought this face done in clay would make a wonderful model for a slipper. It looks like a slipper, and if you needed something to tighten it, you could run drawstrings through the nostrils. I bet my grandkids would like slippers that look like this. They could put them under the bed and then there would really be something scary there.
Other people would undoubtedly select a different group of items to highlight. I will have to check back next week to see what the judges selected. There is an awards program and reception for the show this Sunday (Feb 19) from 1:30-3:00 pm Rensselaer time.
