Dreams And Reflections: High School Art In Library Exhibit
The Estes Valley Library is hosting a special exhibit featuring the artwork of students from Estes Park High School. Thirty original student creations are now on display through the month of March.
The show features drawings and paintings from twenty-eight highly accomplished art students. Mediums include pencil, colored pencil, charcoal, pastels, watercolors and acrylic paints. Featured this month is a wide range of subjects, including portraits, autobiographies, landscapes and interior settings. High School Art Instructor Mary Nelson notes that it is both rewarding and fascinating to observe how these advanced artists are developing individual styles within their art.
The March exhibit celebrates an eclectic array of realistic, abstract, and non-objective work. Nelson encourages the public to visit the exhibit this month, noting that the Library show is one of the best opportunities the community has to enjoy the artistic talent and creativity of local youth.
This marks the second year the Library has hosted works from the High School student community. Additionally, several high school students had their work featured in last fall’s “One Book One Valley” Western-themed art show.
Throughout the year, the Estes Valley Library’s second floor art exhibits are offered to help celebrate the work of local and regional artists. To learn more about upcoming events, visit the Library’s web site at estesvalleylibrary.org or call (970) 586-8116.
