The Art of Music to exhibit works of CHS students
Claremont High School is well represented, with over 30 students juried into the show, Art Reach, on view at the Millard Sheets Gallery at Fairplex.
Hundreds of entries were submitted from area high school students. CHS students working in ceramics, computer graphic arts, photography, visual art, art production and 2-D and 3-D studio art, as well as some beginning visual art students participated in creating art inspired by “The Art of Music” theme.
Students who have had artwork selected in the show have made it through some tough elimination rounds. Each teacher was allowed to submit up to 20 of their best student pieces, then exhibitors went through at least two rounds during the selection process.
Some CHS students have been honored with awards. They are:
Lily Hong (second place, digital art); Kaylee Teague (third place, other 3D art); Michael Cooper (third place, “Stay Tuned”); Kiavash Shahriari (honorable mention, photography); Helen Thomas (first place, ceramics); Briana Quezada (third place, ceramics); Amanda Perea (honorable mention, ceramics); Justin Holcomb (third place, other 2D); and Katie Serabyn (honorable mention, other 2D).
In addition to the Art of Music exhibit, a special installation called Stay Tuned features almost 50 pieces of art created on records or CDs by CHS students.
