High School Pic[ks] 1 includes a wide variety of two-dimensional art: painting, drawing, photography, and mixed media pieces that show the depth and breadth of the students’ creativity.
The participating Carson High School student artists include Charley Andrews, Katy Liemandt, and Jessica Mathiesen. The Douglas High students are Abbie Baxter, Shelby Casaus, Vincent Gonzales, Liam Holman, Tabitha Keating, Leedi Martinez, Jasa Villaneuva, and Jessica Withrow. Dayton High is represented by artists Hannah Gottschalk, Schyler Manley, Kamryn Stevenson, and Oakley Workman.
These talented artists are students of Mike Malley at Carson High, Malaynia Wick at Dayton High, and Rita Borselli and Kimberly Brennan at Douglas High. Sharon Rosse, CCAI Executive Director, said “We are delighted to present this exhibition to showcase the artists’ work and to thank the teachers for nurturing our young artists’ skills and imaginations.”
The Brick is open to the public Monday – Friday, 8am – noon, 1-4pm. The show will remain in the building’s lobby exhibition space through November 29.
