Artwork of BHS students selected for South Suburban exhibit

South Suburban Art Exhibit
Artwork created by students at Burnsville High School was selected for the annual South Suburban Conference High School Visual Arts Exhibition in the Fine Arts Gallery of Normandale Community College, 9700 France Ave. South, Bloomington. A reception and award ceremony will take place on Jan. 8 from 6-8 p.m., which is the final day of the exhibit.
BHS students with artwork in the exhibit are:
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, Lindsay 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.
