(October 18, 2016) Highlands High School students Susan Kremer, Jenna Martin, Emma Schutte and Paul Tully have had artwork accepted into the Biennial Regional High School Junior and Senior Juried Exhibition. This selective art exhibition is hosted by the Xavier University Department of Art.
The exhibition, featuring paintings, drawings, sculpture and mixed media work, was open to all junior and senior high school art students in the Tri-State with fewer than one third of its applicants being selected. Awards will be given for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place as voted on by the Xavier Art faculty. The Xavier student art group, Visual Arts Society, will also vote on their favorite artwork and present an award as well.
“Our Advanced Placement Art students are working very hard and producing impressive work. I’m so pleased that their artwork will be exhibited at Xavier. It will be an excellent show,” said Kris Donnelly, Highlands High School art teacher.
Students’ artwork will be on display November 4-18, 2016, at the Xavier University Art Gallery located on the first floor of the A. B. Cohen Center. An opening reception will be held from 5:30-7:30pm on November 4, 2016, with awards announced at 7pm.
The selected student artwork is available to preview on the Fort Thomas Independent Schools homepage.
