GUHSD Art Students Honored at Shemer Art Center Exhibition

GUHSD Art Students Honored at Shemer Art Center Exhibition
December 2010 - Fifty high schools around the valley participated in the Shemer Art Center's annual student art competition and exhibition, New Horizons. Students from Apollo, Cortez, Greenway, Independence, Moon Valley, Sunnyslope, and Thunderbird represented GUHSD and also received a variety of awards.

Greenway senior Ashley Warner received a $50 prize from the Arizona Artist Guild for her photograph entitled "Almighty Anguish."

Two Moon Valley seniors were also honored. Chelsi Rossi's piece was purchased by the director of the gallery before the show even began and is a mixed media work incorporating paper, wood, organic matter, and acrylic called "The Golden Ratio." Also, Julie Norton's work, "Between Dreams and Reality," a surreal diptych rendering in pencil and colored pencil, won the Ted Decker award for excellence.
