A Big Show in May - Viroqua Teens

"Graceful Hesitation" by Julia Morgan, Laurel High School, WRAA State Award winner
Student Artists Featured at VIVA Gallery

For the month of May, VIVA Gallery will exhibit works by high school artists. The schools represented are Laurel High School, a charter school within the Viroqua Area School System, the Youth Initiative High School and artwork by students who have studied with Viroqua artist Kathie Wheeler.

Students will present work in several media, including painting, drawing, photography, clay and sculpture. Among the works will be pieces that won state awards at the recent Wisconsin Regional Arts Program’s high school show, held in Richland Center.

Anne Tedeschi, VIVA member, art instructor, and organizer of the exhibit, says “I find it very exciting to see the unusual level of talent among so many young artists, and I am looking forward to the opening of this very special show.”

Meet the student artists at VIVA’s First Thursday reception on May 5 from 5:00pm to 7:00pm. Treats will be served.  The Girls’ Ukulele band (best known as Garlic Breath) will provide music. 

You can see the student work at the gallery throughout the month of May, as well as work of 17 member artists.
