LT gets set to celebrate the creativity, hard work, and dedication of many talented students in the annual Spring Art Show running from April 11 – April 17 at South Campus Room D103.  

The show will feature artwork from a variety of levels including drawing and painting, ceramics, jewelry and metalsmithing, digital photo art, advanced photography, animation, graphic design, beginning photo, and studio art.  

Admission is free and open to the public throughout the entire week.  

The show will include over 500 pieces of artwork, mostly done by students from the second semester. Jamie Rey, a LT art teacher and an organizer of the event views the show as a great opportunity to appreciate the work of the students.  

The art show is a wonderful compilation of student talent that deserves recognition for their creativity, hard work, dedication, and passion for the arts,” Rey said.   

While entrance is free, there will be two fundraisers benefiting the St. Cletus Food Pantry. One of which is The Empty Bowls Project, which helps feed local families in need. Each bowl cost only $10 and is hand-made and created by LT students. Also, photo greeting cards will also be sold for $5 for two cards as a part of the Photo Card fundraiser.  

Matthew Brod, head of the Empty Bowls Project fundraiser hopes to raise $700 to beat the $600 total from last year’s show. Brod also suggests that supporting the artwork can do more than people think. 

 “To support the creative arts in all its forms is to rejoice in and affirm the connections that bridge cultures, race, [and] gender,” Brod said. “It is in art that we find some common ground on which we can build relationships based on trust, tolerance, respect, and understanding.”

Rey anticipates another successful year and has high expectations for the show. 

“Last year was our first year in this venue and it was a huge success,” Rey said.  

Brod shares the same optimistic view and believes it is an event unlike any other.  

“It is the one event that LT hosts that brings the community, students, teachers, and parents together to celebrate the accomplishments of LT artists,” Brod said.
