Creating art isn’t just an expression of individuality and creativity – it can lead individuals wherever they want to go in life. And for nearly 200 area high school students, it led directly to Rock Valley College for the 30th Annual Juried High School Art Show, where their creativity and individuality are on display now through April 5, 2023, in RVC’s Educational Resource Center.
The art show kicked off on March 8 with an opening reception and awards ceremony. Hundreds of students and their families flocked to the event, and several lucky students were honored with awards that included top three, best of show, honorable mention, and juror’s mention.
Here is a complete listing of the 2023 honorees:
Best of Show
Christopher Brown, Guilford High School • Title: Chiaroscuro
Yareidi Zarate, Jefferson High School • Title: Sleeping Beauty
Margaret Zhu, Harlem High School • Title: Ginger
Lilly Stanfa, Guilford High School • Title: Untitled
