Recently, students at New Haven High School submitted their art to the Four Rivers art show. Their pieces were shown in an exhibit from April first to April twelfth, at East Central College in Hansen Hall 121, Art Gallery.
Lauralie Grater, a junior, was asked about her thoughts on the art show. She responded, “Well, I had pieces that I have made that went to the art show. Five pieces went: one pottery piece, one block print, one mixed media, bique pattern, and my sculpture. I got third in my bique and sculpture, second in my mixed media, and high memorable for my block print. I felt so happy when I got ribbons and placed in the art show.”
Sierra Elliott, a senior, was asked the same question and responded with, “For the Four Rivers art show, my class (graphic communications) is actually putting pieces into it. I think it’s a great way to get some people to put their art out there for others to see.”
Dori McCarty, a sophomore, said, “It was amazing to have not one, but two pieces put in the art show. I'm not in an art class this year-- there wasn't room on my schedule. I am in Yearbook, so Mrs. Borcherding let me work on my digital art piece during that class. When my mom told me that my digital piece had gotten third place I was so excited. I have been trying to win a competition for so long and to even get third place was awesome considering the digital category also included photos. I can't wait to see that ribbon hanging on the corner of my artwork. I will remember it forever. I can tell that this is the start of a whole new world for me-- I actually feel like I am good enough to make a living off of my art.”
Good job, New Haven artists!
