High school students’ art to be displayed in gallery

March 25, 2010

Students from at least 13 local high schools will soon have their artwork displayed for a judged exhibition in a professional gallery setting at the University of Saint Mary’s annual High School Art Invitational.

The event's opening runs from 1:30 to 3 p.m. Sunday, March 28, and the exhibit is open through Friday, April 16, in Xavier Hall's Goppert Gallery on the USM Leavenworth campus, 4100 S. Fourth Street. The reception and show are free and open to the public.

Student artists will compete for cash prizes and scholarships. Awards will be presented during the opening reception on Sunday, March 28.

Gallery hours after the opening are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Sundays.

The theme of this year's show is "Portraits," and entries must reflect the theme. Previous High School Art Invitational themes have included "Black & White" and "Color." Past exhibits have featured more than 135 entries.

Call Susan Nelson at (913) 758-6151 or email for more information on the art show.
