High Art

High Art is an annual exhibition showcasing the extraordinary talent and ideas of high school students enrolled in public, private, parochial, alternative, charter or homeschool programs. 

The Lamp Beside the Golden Door by Gustavo Prado.

High Art 2022

Theme: REFLECTIONS

Reflect on the world around you – either literally or figuratively – to create personal and profound artworks that consider the power of the reflection.  Artists have been transfixed by reflections throughout history, the simple play of light on still water or glass, a figure in the mirror as an effective tool to communicate identity or using surfaces to place a call for reflection from the viewer that welcomes or captures them in the piece. 

Play with metallic materials, glass and mirrors. Ponder depictions of self-reflection, double visions, explore optical illusions or distortions, traveling through the looking glass, reflect on moments in time or contemplate nature’s mirrors.  For inspiration look to artists through the ages such as Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio, M.C. Escher, Francis Cadell, Charlotte Greeven, Graham Caldwell, Sir Anish Kapoor, Faith Ringgold, Gustavo Prado and Olafur Eliasson. 

Woman in the Mirror by Faith Ringgold.
