2017 ARTIST TEEN MENTORING PROJECT

April 14– April 28, 2017

Rogue Gallery April 2017 Exhibits and News: 2017 Artist Teen Mentoring Project

Reception: Friday, April 21, 5–8pm

This exhibition is a culmination of Rogue Gallery & Art Center’s annual Artist Teen Mentoring Project that pairs professional artists with Rogue Valley high school students for intensive study and interaction. On display is the creative work of both teens and mentoring artists, which includes painting in acrylic and oil, assemblage, printmaking, pen and ink, charcoal, and sculpture.

 

Through the program, the students learn new techniques to use in their work, how to present their work in an exhibit, and gain insight to the life of a professional artist. Teen artists had the opportunity to work with an established artist to create art in a variety of media. To be accepted into the program, the teens went through an application process that included a portfolio review, a written essay, letters of recommendation, and an interview. The selected students for the program spent ten weeks with their mentors, learning and practicing techniques and preparing their work for display. The time, talent, and dedication are evident in the quality of artwork on display that includes abstract, expressionism, impressionism, and realistic styles.

 

Mentor artists are Jenny Calaba, Sheri Dinardi, David Masters, Nancy Jo Mullen, and Silvia Trujillo. Students are from Cascade, Eagle Point, Logos Charter, South Medford, and St. Mary’s high school, and include Emma Bennion, Maia Bierwirth, Christina Cannon, Alyssa Dunham, Brieann Fitch, Matt Hearon, Alyssa Patterson, and Sophia Von Haden.
