Student Art Work on Display in the Keeble and Shuchat Gallery
Keeble and Shuchat, in partnership with the Palo Alto Unified School District, is proud to present an exhibit of photographs by students at Gunn and Palo Alto High Schools.
Sharon Ferguson, the PAUSD Art Coordinator, tells us:
There are many kinds of successful students: academic achievers, gifted writers, perfect pitch singers, outstanding athletes, accomplished musicians, and stunning visual artists. In our Strategic Goals for 2015-2016, PAUSD made a commitment to reach out, identify, and honor the diversity of success that represents our incredible spectrum of accomplishment. This exhibit acknowledges the artistic success that is taking place in PAUSD’s educational arena and represents Art Education’s commitment to share our creative diversity. Photography students, who are powerfully committed to their art, created the work in this exhibit. They go significantly beyond assignments in the classroom and the results are amazing. They are technically accomplished, but also show an evolved perspective or intention. These students take pictures that make us feel, think, and want to know more about how they do their art and why it is so important to them. They have tapped into power of art to communicate ideas, feelings and connectedness. This is significant and meaningful accomplishment!
The show is open and available for view during business hours through May 10th, 2016. The school district will host an opening reception on April 23rd from 1:00 PM – 4:00 PM for the artists and the public is invited to attend the reception and meet the photographers.
