Students of New Haven High School have been given the opportunity by Christian Serrato, the owner of what was previously Lancito’s, to show art in the opening of his first ever art gallery. The art gallery will be held in the old Lancito’s building during Fire Fest in November. Any and all are welcome. The art gallery is open to the public, no payment for entry is required. Many of the pieces for the art show will be coming from independent art students, but some will also come from students in a particular art class. Some will come from middle school students as well as elementary students too.
Some students from the independent art classes had this to say about possibly having their pieces in the showing:
Dalyla Hurst, senior, commented, “I feel nervous that one of my pieces could be entered into the art contest.”
Lauralie Grater, senior, has replied with, “I think it gives a chance for people to see what everyone makes in the world, and also it’s a good experience for the students.”
Junior Dori McCarty said, “It is a great opportunity to get myself out there even if it is just in our small town. So many people may see my art. It's exciting and also very nerve-wracking.”
Bernabe Ribera, senior, stated, “I feel very nervous because it has been a long time since I have drawn anything. I hope that my art is as good as it was in my prime days. This [showing] could definitely boost my confidence and someday I hope my art can get a whole lot better.”
There will only be fifteen pieces from the high school students and six pieces from the middle schoolers going to the art showing. The person collecting these pieces of art will be the New Haven High School art teacher Mrs. Katie Borcherding. After the first showing it will be open to any artist in the public.
