New Students Mean Different Art Again this Year

With a new group of student artists each year, the Edge Center Gallery exhibits the innovation best made possible with youngster's early encounters creating art. The Bigfork Student Art Exhibit runs from May 7 to 24, and features the work of this year’s creative and imaginative minds. The exhibit is always colorful and surprising. The young student artists learn the basics of color, texture, shape, line, plus dark and light as used in compositions as they are stretching their creativity. The art show is open through May 24th. Normal gallery hours are Thursdays, Friday and Saturdays 10AM to 4PM.

The art is from Roberta Steinhart’s art classes. As in every year, in May dozens of wonderful examples of sculptures, drawings, and paintings are on display. Student artwork is some of the most interesting, imaginative and emotional work you will see in the Gallery. Steinhart emphasizes that the students express meaning in their art, whether it is drawing, painting, or ceramics. The student work often reflects aspects of their lives as emerging adults.  The best way to prepare a visitor for the exhibit is to see some of the work (below). If you wish, contact the school for more details.

These photos should provide enough incentive to come and see the show.  If you need a little more encouragement, look at this last image below for a while and see if you find yourself smiling. If you do, that’s what student art often does for people. What a great feeling. Come to The Edge Gallery by May 24th on Thursdays, Fridays or Saturdays between 10AM and 4PM to see the whole colorful show.
