Lanesboro Arts is proud to present the annual Jury High School Art Exhibition January 8-23, featuring artwork from grades 9-12 students from Chatfield, Fillmore Central, Lanesboro and High Schools. Rushford-Peterson. The exhibition features a variety of artistic projects, including those in ceramics, acrylic, pastels, ink, pencil, photography and mixed media sculpture.
Lanesboro Public School Visual Arts and Journalism teacher Stena Lieb touts the show‘s role in developing young artists. “Some students who choose to participate may not be confident in their skills and be afraid to show their work. In our art classes, we work to build confidence and try new mediums. The exhibition at Lanesboro Arts helps prove that these student artists can achieve what they have in mind.
“At Lanesboro Arts, we are delighted to provide a professional gallery experience for our local student artists,” said Gallery Director Kris Viesselman.
The exhibition will begin with a reception of artists (masks required) from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. January 8. Visitors will have the chance to talk to student artists while viewing the work. Always free and open to the public, the gallery’s opening hours are Thursday to Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. (or by appointment). Masks are mandatory in the gallery and visitors are limited to one social unit in the gallery at a time.
The exhibit is made possible by voters in Minnesota through an Operating Support Grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, through a legislative appropriation of the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
