On Saturday, November 2, a student art gallery was held in the old Lancito’s Pizza building. The gallery was open to the public during Fire Fest. There was an art piece hanging on every part of the wall and some pieces were even being sold by the student artist Dori McCarty.
Mrs. Borcherding described the show by saying, “The artworks on display [were] selected from NHES, NHMS, and NHHS art students. Artworks [were] both 2D and 3D and [were] created during this school year. Both Dori and Bernabe's submissions for the Walgreens Expressions competition [were] also on display. Dori [also had] some prints of her work available for sale. This [was] the first art show held in that space.”
Bernabe Ribera, one of the student artists, described the experience by saying, “I was a bit nervous because that was my first art piece that I put my emotions into. I didn't think that many people would like it or understand it as much. I named my piece ‘emotions’, I think. My artwork represents a little bit about my life and the struggles I had to go through. I also did not want to make it all about me, so I also added in a few things that other young teens may have gone through.”
Bernabe continued: “I unfortunately was not able to see the other art works on display. I did, however, see Dori and her drawings that she was going to put on display and I thought they looked great. I think that the visitors liked our artwork and noticed our potential since we are still pretty young.”
The following lists the students who had artwork on display for the show and the respective titles of their pieces: Autumn Harvey-Unicorn; Jasmine Canania-J.E.C. and Self-Portrait; Paige Remillard-Caution and Later Dude; Vicky Beckmann-Landscape; Bryce Peth- “L” Illuminated; Dori McCarty-Crowley, Vampire, Princess, Demon, and Anxiety’s Demons; Natalie Buchheit-Basura and Summer night at the beach; Andrew Rethemeyer-Illusion Art; Bernabe Ribera-Emotions; Emilee Hinten-Softball Memories; Grace Allgaier- Zero; Tressa Carver-Illusion; Lauralie Grater-Blossoms; Carter Moeckli-Optical Illusion; Shelby Tallent-Happy Accidents; Bailey Fleer-Unnamed; Janelle Cronin-Unnamed; Ty James-Unnamed; Caiden Henning-Unnamed; Brayden Tegeler-Unnamed; and Addison Tolar-Turtles and 18.
Great job with all the beautiful pieces created by NHHS artists! Can’t wait to see the pieces next year.
