The La Salle Art Exhibit is the marquee opportunity for CB art students to show off their best work.
Many students on campus create art for fun, to express something, or to reveal themselves. Art is a tangible way to showcase a little piece of themselves. On May 16th at 7:00 PM, students will be able to share some of their favorite pieces of art with the school at the 21st annual La Salle Art Exhibit. The exhibit will be held in Brother Bertram hall, free of charge, and will provide food and drink. There are a total of 65 pieces entered, with some for viewing and others for sale.
However, not all students are planning on selling their work. Seamus Hudnut (‘16), winner of the Christmas Card competition, explains why he decided not to sell his artwork.
“I just can’t find it in myself to sell it. I put so much work into making it, and it won the competition which is sentimental to me,” he mentions. “But I do want to sell some of my art later, most likely.”
Other people find joy in selling art to a good home for the right price. Making both the artist and buyer happy, students who sell art will make the entire profit. Even if one decides not to sell their piece, the top four winners of the show are given a cash prize. The table of rewards goes as shown.
Best of Show- $250
First Place- $150
Second Place- $100
Third Place- $50
For some people, art is something to start now and finish later but some others dedicate most of their time to finishing out their piece to completion such as senior Zac Van Someren (‘13). His sister, Zaya Van Someren (’16) explains his time at home as “mostly spent doing art”.
“He sits in his room all day and paints. It takes up a lot of his time especially his painting called ‘Sunset Caddi’,” she tells the Talon. “But it is definitely something to be seen and worth the price tag of $500.”
All of the artwork entered is amazing, however it was not like this 21 years ago durring the first La Salle Art Show which our own Mr. Kevin McGovern ‘74 created. Mr. McGovern explains his experience at the first La Salle Art Exhibit.
“Back in the first La Salle Art Exhibit, a lot of the works were good, but would not even qualify to get into one this year,” the art teacher remembers. “It is good to see how many talented students we have on campus now.”
Mark the calender, save the date, and support your fellow students while having a blast the the 2013 La Salle Art Exhibit.
