On October 27, fifteen Sheboygan Visual Artists exhibited original creations in paint, fibre, photography, paper, and assemblage. Ten outstanding high school art students, chosen by their teachers, displayed their best work. And possibly 100 or more grassroots artists will compete for cash prizes for their “Most Artistic” rocks.
Amongst all the art, two Kohler High School art students (Kasey Lacerda & Hannah Neist) and art teacher, Jessica Ott, participated in this gallery exhibit. The girls were voted on and winners were selected. The art show was held at the Sheboygan Visual Arts Gallery at 1201 Erie Ave, Sheboygan, WI.
Sheboygan Visual Artists (SVA) is a non-profit, 501-3c, group consisting of approximately 125 artists and art patrons. SVA exists to bring quality art to the local community. SVA artists range from oil, acrylic and watercolor artists through sculptors, photographers, sketch and fabric artists and collage, digital and mixed media artists. SVA provides an environment where artists can exhibit and sell their art, network with other artists, and improve their artistic skills.
After enjoying live music, food, and conversation in the gallery the results were announced for both student work and professional work in the gallery. Our very own, senior Kasey Lacerda was awarded second place and junior Hannah Neist was awarded an honorable mention. Both girls are beautiful artists and as their art teacher, I am very proud of the hard work and dedication that goes into each other pieces.
