High School Artists Featured in Annual Show at Calaveras Arts Council

Calaveras County, CA...ArtSpirit, the 11th annual High School Juried Exhibition will open in the gallery of the Calaveras Arts Council on Saturday, March 8. A public reception for the participating artists who are from the high schools of Bret Harte, Calaveras, Mountain Oaks and Vallecito, will be held in the San Andreas gallery on March 8, from 1:00 to 3:00 pm. During that time, cash....


awards will be presented to students judged as first and second place winners in 12 categories, including Black and White Photography, Color Photography, Digital/Computer art, Oil or Acrylic Painting, Watercolor Painting, Pastels, Drawing, Functional Ceramics, Sculpture, Printmaking, Other/Mixed Media, and Crafts.

Since March has been designated both nationally and statewide as Arts Education Month, this ArtSpirit exhibit is meant to call attention to the importance of having an education steeped in the arts. The exhibit provides the public with the rare opportunity to observe and possibly purchase art created by the county’s many very talented teens. Last year hundreds of students entered nearly 200 works.

Small groups of students actually hang and label the show which is an awesome task, given how many works are entered. Judging of the art for the cash awards is by local professional artists. The awards and the exhibit’s expenses are underwritten by an Endowment for Youth grant from Mark Twain St. Joseph’s Hospital Thrift Store.

ArtSpirit was chosen as the title to symbolize that through art, students often feel a spirit to express their innermost feelings, whether it be rage, fear, or joy and spirituality. Visitors will be impressed with the quality and the diversity and will be able to cast a ballot for their favorite artwork. At the end of the show in April, a Popular Choice cash award will be presented to the student artist with the most votes. Last year, over 250 people voted.

Calaveras Arts Council has been assisting local schools for over two decades with its esteemed Arts In Education program which provides a wide range of visual and performing arts workshops and assemblies.

The arts council’s gallery, located at 22 Main Street in San Andreas, is open weekdays 9:00 am to 4:00 pm and on Saturdays, 11:00 am to 3:00 pm. For more information, phone the Calaveras County Arts Council, 754-1774 or visit www.calaverasarts.org.
