The St. Augustine Art Association, in partnership with St. Johns County Schools, will present the 10th Annual All-County High School Art Show, March 6 – 29, at 22 Marine Street. Art teachers in all of the local high schools selected a combined total of 150 student works of art for the exhibit. The materials range from experimental digital media and graphite studies to abstract pottery and sculptural assemblages.
Installed by Rebecca Williams, teacher, and coordinated by Tommy Bledsoe, St. Johns County Fine Arts Program Specialist, the exhibition is sponsored by Carr, Riggs and Ingram and was judged by Cable Spence, an artist, musician and Advisory Board Member of the St. Augustine Art Association.
“These young artists really knocked it out of the park in this exhibit. Their work is just amazing,” said Spence. “I have to credit their teachers, parents and the school system for emphasizing the value of good art education,” he said.
Also on display during March is the popular Cutting Edge Exhibition, a juried installation featuring works created by professional and emerging artists that push the boundaries of ideas and materials.
Award winners for both exhibits will be announced during the First Friday Art Walk on March 6, at 7 p.m. The event is free and open to the public. Due to ongoing construction, visitors should use the Charlotte Street entrance at the Art Association. For information, call (904) 824-2310 or visit www.staaa.org.
