Forty-seven Huntley High School students are among participants from across McHenry County in the Fox Valley Conference Art Show at McHenry County College April 5-17.
Each year, art teachers from 15 county schools choose outstanding work from among their students and classes to represent their department. Work may range from traditional drawings and paintings to digital photography, graphic design, mixed media work and 3D pieces such as sculpture, ceramics or jewelry.
The HHS participants comprise all grade levels and courses in the visual arts and were selected by art department faculty. The teachers also chose a 2D and a 3D Showcase piece showing exemplary skills in technique, craftsmanship & originality.
The work will hang in the hallways of the lower wing of A buildings in the Epping gallery, artspace 144 and the student gallery cases near the Art Department.
Artwork will be on display from Tuesday, April 5 to Sunday, April 17, with a reception on Friday, April 15, from 6:00-8:00 p.m. The reception is free and open to the public and will feature light refreshments. Announcements and awards for the ribbon winners will be at 7:00 p.m. in the gym adjacent to the galleries.
The show is judged by two or three outside artists or former art teachers. Work is recognized for exceptional skill, creativity, or an outstanding resolution of the two combined. Best of show ribbons are given for 2D work, 3D work, Digital work as well as Honorable Mention ribbons.
Huntley entries received three Honorable Mention Ribbons and on Best of Show, in the category of Digital Art. The names of the winners will be announced at the reception on April 15.
