Two- and three-dimensional works by Oberlin High School students are on display through Sunday, Feb. 19 at the Lorain County Regional Scholastic Art Exhibition.
You can see their amazing pieces from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Monday through Friday; from 5-7 p.m. from Tuesday to Thursday; and from 1-5 p.m. on Sundays at the Stocker Center gallery at Lorain County Community College.
OHS art teachers Danielle Camino, Kathy Hilton, and Donna Shurr entered the student creations, which were assessed by an esteemed panel of art and design professionals and professors from Northeast Ohio. Work was judged by originality, technical skill, and emergence of personal vision and voice.
