Burnsville High School senior Lindsey Larson earned an Achievement Award for her artwork, "The Difference," which was selected for the annual South Suburban Conference High School Visual Arts Exhibition in the Fine Arts Gallery of Normandale Community College.
BHS students with artwork in the exhibit were:
Grade 10: Jane Davis, Lilliana Schmitz
Grade 11: Sonita Hang, Alexandra Lee, Michelle Pliego Juarez, Alyssa Schmidt
Grade 12: Jo' Wan Blunt, Melissa Islas Arcega, Emily Lang, Lindsey Larson
Each school from south of the Minnesota River can submit 10 pieces. Burnsville High School students were selected by their teachers Susan Buckrey, Kate Quirk and Robyn Tousignant.
“We chose these 10 artists based on their high technical ability and their distinct artistic voice,” said Quirk. “We’re very proud of these super talented students with artwork in this exhibit.”
The gallery is open to the public during regular business hours.
The annual art show, which has been held at Normandale for more than 20 years, provides sharing and learning opportunities in the visual arts for talented students who attend high schools in the South Suburban Conference.
