Visual Feast: KPBSD Juried Student Art Show

The room was packed at the April 2, 2015, opening reception for the 26th annual juried art show. Middle school awards and high school awards were presented, and guests mingled, pausing to talk to artists, and feast on art in categories ranging from drawing, printmaking, functional ceramics, photography, sculpture, watercolor, and mixed media.

A big thank you to the KPBSD art teachers, student artists, and judges. The show will hang until April 30, 2015, at the Kenai Fine Arts Guild in Old Town Kenai, 816 Cook Street, Kenai, Alaska.

“I am so proud of all of the art students represented in the show,” said Andrea Eggleston, Skyview Middle School. “As an art teacher it is very difficult to choose pieces to represent our school. There are so many young artists working with amazing skills. All students whose work has made it to the show should feel honored even if they didn’t receive an award, the true honor is simply being selected for the show. They are truly representing their schools beautifully. I hope this show proves the amazing quality of our art programs at these schools. I would like to encourage administrators, parents, and community to not forget this and please continue to support our valuable classes.”
