On February 4, 2017, the Springville Museum of Art will be officially opening their exhibition for the annual Utah All-State High School Art Show. This annual juried exhibition will be showcasing the 2D and 3D works of high school juniors and seniors from all around Utah--and five from Logan High. The show’s online website has an explanation of what the competition will be and what ideas if brings to the table:
“The purpose of this exhibition is to foster original visual art among Utah teenagers by providing a professional forum for student artists. Giving students a taste of competition; something they will encounter in their future art careers in college and later in the professional world.”
This year Logan High submitted twelve pieces into this competition and will be finding out if any of the students made it in on January 27, 2017. With only a few selected from Logan High each year, the art students are patiently awaiting the fate of their masterpieces.
Congratulations to Abby Craig, Jared Emery, Brookelle Peterson, Allen Cunningham and Kailee Decker for creating outstanding work selected to be featured in the show.
Mr. Rigby, the photo teacher, said he has been attending the show with Logan High since 2001. Between 2001 and 2016, around 74 of our Grizzlies have been featured in the show.
After a long week of anticipation, this year’s results were finally revealed. Out of the twelve pieces Logan High submitted, five have been chosen for the show. The five student artists are Abby Craig, Jared Emery, Brookelle Peterson, Allen Cunningham, and Kailee Decker. With pieces being entered in from all over the state, having so many of our students making it in was outstanding.
With the exhibition up and running, the art department is planning on visiting the museum on February 7. Some of the AP students who have been on the field trip before said that they have been very impressed with the exhibit and are excited to see what’s in store this year. The field trip has always been an incredible way to expose students to new art and different perspectives, when looking at it.
The Springville Art Show is a fun experience, and the five finalists are representing Logan High with class.
