Twelve students from Calvert High School are to present their best work during their annual art show at the Hayes Center for the Arts on the Campus of Tiffin University Jan. 18 .
The exhibit, "Mixed Emotions," is to take place in TU's Diane Kidd Gallery. There are to be 30 pieces entered in the show, which runs through Jan. 31.
"(There is) a lot of variety in media this year," said Calvert art teacher Marla Shultz.
The show is to feature work done in oil painting, acrylic, watercolor, mixed media, graphite, ebony and ink.
Shultz said this year there are more drawings in ebony and graphite, "which requires a lot of attention to detail," she said.
Students entering work into the show are Allie Beckley, Nicole Bickley, Madalyn Contreras, Allison Huss, Christian Huss, Meridith Lucius, Mallory Paul, Cassie Recker, Morgan Smith, Clare Sullivan, Bradlee Warnement and Alexandria Wick.
The students are from advanced art, including Art II, III and IV; and one student in Art I, Clare Sullivan.
Sullivan has one piece that she plans to enter in the show, an ebony drawing of an old-fashioned car.
"I wanted to draw something different and to challenge myself," Sullivan said. "I picked a picture that had more detail."
Sullivan, a freshmen, said it is a big honor to have work in the show.
"There are a lot of talented artists at Calvert. It is going to be a good show," she said.
Sullivan said she plans to persue a career as an architect and interior designer.
Senior Cassie Recker said she is to have three or four pieces in the show. Her favorite is a black-and- white ebony drawing of a bulldog laying on a deck.
"I love bulldogs. I've always thought they were cute," Recker said.
To her, Recker said the title of their exhibition explains all the types of pieces that are to be in the show and that each person has their own views on art and go at art in different ways.
"Art is just a hobby for me, but it means a lot to me. It lets me express myself in so many ways," Recker said.
