High Art 2022: REFLECTIONS

In-gallery Exhibition:  May 17th – June 2nd, 2022

_____________

Fifteen Massachusetts high schools will showcase highly reflective installation art at the Attleboro Arts Museum’s annual High Art exhibition held in-gallery from May 17th – June 2nd, 2022. High Art connects teens with artists both past and present, fosters the creation of original artworks, and provides a professional forum for students to voice their creativity and work collaboratively.

This year’s High Art theme of REFLECTIONS will feature personal and profound installations that reflect on the world around us – either literally or figuratively. 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. 

Visitors will come face to face with their own reflection – asking them to consider their place in the world, ponder double visions, explore optical illusions or distortions and even travel through the looking glass. Some installations are focusing specifically on metallic materials such as glass and mirror while others will take you on a journey of self-reflection and contemplation.

Artist, Fehmida Chipty of Winchester, MA has been invited to serve as juror for the exhibition. Chipty will assign the following Awards – Best in Show; Second Place; Third Place; Honorable Mention and select Merit Awards. These awards will be announced here and on the Museum’s social media pages on Wed, May 18th.

Visitors of the High Art Exhibition will be asked to cast their People’s Choice Award ballot by using either a QR Code reader or a computer terminal in the Museum’s gallery that connects to a Google Form. Virtual People’s Choice Award votes will be collected throughout the course of the exhibit – with the award given to the top school after the exhibition has concluded on June 2nd at 4pm.
