Pop Goes the Art

May at the Bandon Library Art Gallery features the work of the Bandon High School Art Students. Under the direction of teacher Jen Ells, the grades 9 – 12 students at Bandon High encounter a wide range of historical and contemporary artists. The work of such artists as Pop Art painter Dean Russo become a jumping off point, giving the students great creative freedom while maintaining the discipline of the assignments. They work clay, paint on silk, and of course, draw and paint on paper and canvas realistically and surrealistically. They make portraits and self-portraits; folk art and still life, abstract, and multi-screen, multi-color prints. Their work is interesting, original, often inspired.
There will be a reception for the artists on Monday, May 2nd at 4.00 pm in the Sprague Room. All month there will be a box in the gallery to collect your votes for People's Choice Award. The winner will receive Prismacolor pencils and paper; all participating students will get drawing pencils. The show runs from the 2nd through the 31st of May
