Art Exhibit highlights student work

The Chadron State Art Department is hosting its annual All Students Art Show in Memorial Hall’s Main Gallery. The Art Show has been open since April 16 and will remain open until April 30. The gallery is open for viewing from 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on the week days or by an appointment.

The art show is open to any CSC student who has been enrolled in any form of art class over the last two years. The gallery is displaying over 80 pieces of artwork done by more than 40 CSC students. The works on display in the main gallery include clay sculptures, oil painting, stain glass, water color, photography, and drawings.

“Seniors are expected to present four to six pieces of work that have been done over the last two years,” said Tessa Sanford, 22, senior, of Oshkosh.

Sanford submitted four pieces of artwork, two ceramic pots, one titled “Cider pitcher” and the other untitled, along with two multimedia pieces entitled “The Kitchen” and “Buttons”.

“Doing the piece called ‘Buttons’ was my favorite piece to create for the art show, because it’s normally something I would not create,” Sanford said.

Sanford’s other piece, “The Kitchen,” portrays  a mock set up of a kitchen composed of  different medias. One media was wood cut to make the layout of the room. Pictures glued to the surface of the wood show the detail that went into the making of the piece.

Along with the pieces done by Sanford, a few other students shared their interesting artwork as well. From a metal sculpture of a dog made out of metal pieces and bolts entitled “A Dog Named Chevy” by Guy Schmidt of Daytona Beach, Fla., to a stain-glass light box entitled “Agate Sunrise” by Kathy Underwood of Alliance, each piece is unique.
