Showcasing their skill

By Anabel Pasarow

The Senior Art Show will begin on May 31 at 5 p.m. in Feldman-Horn Gallery, showcasing work from all senior artists. Students can choose whatever work of their own they want to display in the gallery. Each student has the same amount of wall space to display their work.

There will be an awards ceremony at 5:30 p.m. and senior videos will be shown at 6 p.m. in the Art History room.

“It is going to be a great show with close to 60 seniors participating,” said visual arts teacher Kevin O’Malley.

In the show, Brandon Zeiden ’11, who is taking Drawing and Painting III, will be displaying a few pieces from his concentration.

“My concentration is inconspicuous evil. It was kind of random really. The concentration came to me. I hadn’t thought of it before,” Zeiden said.

He used colored pencils for his medium, which is different from the paint and charcoal that he normally uses for art assignments.

Jacqueline Sir ’11, who is taking Drawing and Painting 3 as well, is showing three pieces at the show. Her concentration was at first about conformity and self-identity, but it shifted to being more about the class of 2011, inspired by artist René Magritte. She still maintained the theme of self-identity throughout. Sir used acrylic as her medium.

“For this project we had a lot of freedom and less instruction than we have had in the past,” Sir said.

The art show will begin after the George Steinmetz exhibit is taken down from Feldman-Horn.
