Parker students participate annually in a student exhibit through NAEA (National Art Education Association) – San Diego called YAM (or Youth Art Month). We host the exhibit every other year at the Rose Gallery, and the show travels to other locations throughout San Diego on the off years.
This year the exhibit is being held at the Athenaum’s gallery space in Barrio Logan called Bread and Salt. It’s a very cool space, and we are always excited to have our kids participate in outside exhibits. Each year k-12 students have the opportunity to submit artwork, which is then juried by a panel of art educators and art professionals in the county. The jurors select a limited amount of the work using a set of criteria, as well as awards winners by age groups and media categories.
This year the following students were accepted into the show:
Lower School: Sadie Goth, Naomi Ross, Owen Rynning, Hannah Grisby-King, Harry Handley, Chloe Hsu, Phenix Par, & Nora Van Der Lee
Middle School: Olivia Tyndall, Dominic Ciccimaro, Lara Mertens, Isabel Kincart, Sophie Stover, Mina Aldous, Lucius Scala, & Alex Galindo
Upper School: Phoebe Lettington, Scott Drouin, Leonard Daniels, Connor Brokowski, & Olivia Shaw
Participating Teachers: Jess LaRotonda, Barry Cheskaty, Sarah Blalock, and Jaclyn Enck
As with most years, Parker is highly represented due to the quality of the art program and the student work being produced. The exhibit will be on display at Bread and Salt from January 11 – February 8. There will be an Awards Reception on the last day of the exhibit on Saturday February 8 from 5-7pm.
