Oak Ridge ArtAs the end of April rolled around, schools and their teachers prepared for the annual open houses. Oak Ridge High School was no exception.

In addition to visiting their students’ classrooms and the Career Fair parents could view a student-coordinated art show. This is the first year of the ORHS Art Show and not the last.

Between the collaboration of Morgan Lee, a junior at Oak Ridge, and Mrs. Koch, the Art I and 3-D design teacher at Oak Ridge, the planning of the show encompassed eight months.

Such extensive planning allowed for the acceptance of more than 100 pieces of art and drew in just as many, if not more, visitors.

The show was held at Oak Ridge in the multi-purpose room. All four walls were covered in artwork of all media including acrylic, watercolor, pastel, graphite, digital media and ceramics.

While enjoying the beautiful artwork, the viewer also had the chance to enjoy a sweet treat and listen to live music performed by Oak Ridge students.

Overwhelmingly, there was positive feedback and overall amazement at the turnout and presentation of the art show. It had an open concept idea, lights spotlighting artwork and a welcoming atmosphere. It was executed in a way to mimic the famous and prestigious New York Galleries.

“As a viewer, when I stood in the middle of the room and was surrounded by the ‘expressionism’ of the art, I was reminded of how powerfully art can speak” said Linda B. Kissela, a generous contributor to the show.

The Art Show was able to give out art-related prizes in a raffle-like fashion. No purchase was necessary, with the generosity from the following sponsors: Dr. Michael Guess of Guess Orthodontics, Betsy Jones of Utrecht Art Supplies, Linda B. Kissela of Fine Art and Drawing Watercolor Class and Patricia Seide of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage. Without them, the ORHS art community would not have been able to reach out to potential artists.

The underlying goals of the art show were to support the aspiring artists in the art community, promote art education and inspire others to reach their creative potential. It is safe to conclude that all of those goals were achieved and that this art show may be a new tradition for Oak Ridge High School. Look for the show next spring.
