20th Anniversary Regional High School Art Exhibition

The 20th Anniversary Regional High School Art Exhibition sponsored by Prairie Arts Council and Saint Joseph's College is on display in the lobby of the Core Building at SJC until March 1. It features student art from Rensselaer Central, West Central, Tri-County, South Newton, North Newton, and Kankakee Valley High Schools. There are a lot of drawings and paintings and at least one batik, shown below.
There are also some pottery items, these from South Newton students.
Something new for me was zentangle art. The name is trademarked, and it is a way of organizing doodles. The one below was done by a Rensselaer student.
There were several others on display by North Newton students.
There is always enough talent in the area high schools to make this exhibit interesting. The awards program for will be on Sunday, February 24 from 1:30 to 3:00.

The Fendig Gallery has its annual Limelight on Special Creations exhibit on display until March 8. It is sponsored by Prairie Arts Council and Cooperative School Services to celebrate Disability Awareness Month. Below is one that caught my attention.
It is pointillism done with letters.

P.S. The Zentangles are fun to do. Try one. Start with a 4" square and have fun.
