The Miller Art Museum announces the opening of the 44th Annual Salon of Door County High School Art on April 21. The public is invited to join students and family at the opening reception April 23, 7 – 8:30 pm. The event is free and open to the public; refreshments will be served. Along with opening remarks and recognition of sponsors, art teachers will present Certificates of Participation to all participating student artists along with five Awards of Excellence and five Honorable Mentions. This presentation is scheduled for 7:30 pm.
“This exhibition is a pillar of our exhibition program each year,” said Elizabeth Meissner-Gigstead, executive director. “The community element is a strong component of our mission and we look forward every year to see what the young artists of Door County are producing.” The success of this exhibit is due to the high level of passion and commitment shown by the art teachers who dedicate their time to helping students succeed. These teachers are Klayton Kindt, Sevastopol High School; Emily Salm, Gibraltar High School; Melanie Enger, Washington Island Schools; Nicole Herbst, Sturgeon Bay High School; and George Ouimette, Southern Door High School.
“The student exhibition yearly reinforces the talent present in our community, and with every cycle our patrons and visitors are continually challenged and impressed with the quality of work on display,” said Gigstead.
The 44th Annual Salon of Door County High School Art includes paintings, drawings, photography, sculpture, graphics, ceramics and digital media. The exhibit will be on display through May 29 at 5 pm.
The museum is located within the Door County Library, 107 South 4th Avenue, Sturgeon Bay. Admission is free. For more information, call 920.746.0707 or visit millerartmuseum.org.
