The artwork of two Western Christian High School students has been selected to be in the 25th Annual Youth Art Month Exhibition: The “Art of High School Students” at the Sioux City Art Center, is on display in the Art Center’s Jensen, Everist and Terra Galleries through April 6, 2014.
The artwork of Holly Halma, a senior at Western and Megan Hengeveld, a freshman at Western is among the 95 pieces selected from 410 entries from around Siouxland to be in the exhibition.
Hengeveld received First Place in the ninth grade division on her Op Art drawing and was recognized during a public reception ceremony last weekend at the center. Awards were given to the top three pieces in each grade division as well as the director’s choice. Holly Halma will receive a certificate of participation for having her ceramic ball form bowl included in the exhibition. All participants in the exhibition will receive a one-year student membership in the Sioux City Art Center Association. Students will also be able to keep the professional framing of their two-dimensional artwork thanks to the generosity of Pinnacle Bank of Sioux City.
