Real life or Fantasy? Show opens soon for student artists

Exhibit runs from Nov. 18 through Dec. 2


Kennedy students must apply for their work to be accepted to the art exhibit.

Is this real life or just fantasy?

That’s the theme of students’ Advanced Placement Studio Art Exhibit that starts this Friday at 6:30 p.m. and runs through Friday, Dec.2.

The Domicile’  at 568 Boyson Road will be full of Kennedy students’ art.

“We have around 30 pieces in the exhibit and most of them are fantasy,” Alex West, jr., said. “We had more fantasy than reality and that’s because people think of imagination more boldly.”

West is one of several AP Studio students that had a say in what pieces made it into the exhibit. The AP Studio students selected the pieces to go into the show and their favorite pieces for the contest.

Guidelines said that Kennedy students’ art could be made in any medium, anything from the drawing of an eye to a landscape lost in time. Art Studio students then looked for what they considered to be great — those pieces that made it are in the art exhibit. Kennedy students’ creative arts are also displayed in the art box case in the Kennedy cafeteria.

“I can’t wait to see what the Kennedy has in the show this year,” art-lover and Kennedy alumna Bridgette Rogers said. Rogers has been going to the art shows since she attended Kennedy 20 years ago. She has always loved to see the creativity of students. “Every year the art gets better and better.”
