Recently I had the privilege of attending the Bowling Green High School Senior Art show. I was even asked to judge the work prior to the opening reception; this was quite a humbling honor as well as a fantastic opportunity to carefully read all of the artist statements and patiently peruse the works. The artwork and show were amazing, filling me, a fellow artist and teacher, with hope that the world will be getting some more creative citizens.
Aside from the exceptional talent of the students, and I have seen plenty of high school work that is less than exemplary (my senior year at BGSU was spent working in the School of Art's admissions office and it seemed more times than not, a BGHS student was the one behind a dynamic portfolio submission), I applaud the BGHS art teachers. The show was filled with ambitious and highly technical artwork that takes years of patient and expert tutelage, a commodity not in shortage in the BGHS art department.
I want to specifically extend my gratitude to Lloyd Triggs and Nicole Myers. These two individuals are amazing artists in their own right and were also extremely professional and helpful throughout the judging process.
