MHS will host Big 8 art show

Thursday, April 21, 2011

The "Tiger Lillies," pictured above, is a drawing created completely with washable Crayola markers. This painting was created by Jenny Frazier.
Monett High School will be hosting the 2011 Big 8 Art Show, featuring 1,000 pieces created by artists from high schools in the conference. Area high schools take turns hosting the event each spring.

The show will be held from 8 a.m. on Friday, April 29 to noon on Saturday, April 30 in the MHS gymnasium, and members of the community are invited to come view the student artwork.

Spectators will also have the chance to purchase items made by the MHS Art Club as well as the Multicultural Leadership Club from 5 to 7 p.m. on Friday evening.

According to MHS art teacher Rebekah Polly, each conference school is allowed to enter 120 pieces of artwork and these creations are judged and awarded ribbons. Some of the examples of the artwork that will be on display during the show are pictured at left. These pieces are currently on display in the boardroom at the superintendent's office.

Polly and her students cordially invited all area residents to come out and view the Big 8 Art Show and support young artists.
