High School Art Goes to College
An art exhibit at California State University, Sacramento
puts local high school students in a collegiate frame of mind.
San Juan Unified School District
students will display their artwork at CSUS with an opening
night reception from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., Wednesday, Dec. 6
at the Witt Gallery located in Kadema Hall.
Students will be exhibiting
paintings, sculptures, collages and multi-media pieces with
subject matter ranging from figurative to the abstract.
"It has been a real pleasure to work
with high school art teachers. They tell me that their
students are really excited about showing their artwork here
and of course we are delighted to have them," CSUS art
professor Elaine O’Brien said.
Instructors involved in the project
include CSUS alumni Phil Amrhein, El Camino High School art
teacher and Suzanne Mandell, Mira Loma High School art
According to Mandell, this exhibition
is significant because it offers the high school students an
opportunity to present pieces at a professional gallery and
provides a concrete college experience.
"This is a fabulous chance for high
school students to exhibit their pieces at an excellent
gallery and it’s a way for them to imagine themselves on a
college campus," Mandell said.
The exhibit is free and continues
through Dec. 15. Exhibition hours are noon to 4:30 p.m.,
Monday - Wednesday.
