Every Student, Every Day, A Success! What does this mean?

GISH student artists exhibit success across Nebraska, U.S.

Grand Island Senior High student artists have been successful in showing off their talent in exhibitions across the state.

This year, 18 seniors had their work accepted into the Senior Juried Honor Show at Nebraska Wesleyan. The 39 works of art from GISH made up more than half of the art pieces accepted into the show from students across Nebraska.

Eighty-two works from GISH were accepted into the Scholastic Art Awards of Nebraska, which is more work accepted from any Nebraska high school. Fifteen pieces from that show were awarded gold key awards and their work was automatically entered into the National Scholastic Art Awards competition. Only 300,000 art pieces from schools around the nation are entered into Scholastics, and 300 receive gold key awards on the national level. One out of every 1,000 works of art will be accepted into the national show in New York. Enrique Martinez's painting "Mama" was accepted. Maggie Lucero's ceramics piece "Miniatures" was also awarded a silver key award in this national show.

Three GISH juniors’ pieces were exhibited in UNL's Honor Show for seniors. Two students, Adriana Catalan and Chris Ramirez, had paintings accepted into the Nebraska Young Artists Awards juried Invitational Exhibition.

Art students have been honored for their work.
