One Show Committed to Art - that is the title of the Calvert Catholic High Schools art exhibition at the Diane Kidd Gallery located in Tiffin University's Hayes Center for the Arts.
The show is 4-6 p.m. Jan 5 and is to run through Jan. 24.
"There are so many different pieces of work this year that it is hard to describe," art teacher Marla Shultz said. "Students now are coming into their own style and are showcasing their talents and strengths."

One piece to be featured is "Rebirth." Senior Monica Bickley, was inspired to create this piece by the cutting down of trees and seeing new trees and new life forming. The work is created out of wire, paper mache, flowers made out of tissue paper and flower wire.
"The theme of this piece is that you can see life out of destruction," Bickley said. "I enjoy being able to say what I want to with ways I never had before."
There is a variety to the show; pieces are made out of charcoal, water colors, acrylic and oil paints, nails, yarn, and photography.
"The students this year are gutsy and take more risks, I love it," Shultz said. "The students have put in a lot of hard work and it is creative, original and high quality."
