BRAWLEY — The Brawley Union High School art department, under the direction of Janet Cowne, will present its annual art show Thursday at Palmer Auditorium.
Work for this year's exhibition was produced by Cowne's art classes.
Junior Amanda Smith and senior Katie Dean represent the entire Art III class and will display their first ever acrylic painting. Both girls stretched their own canvasses for the lessons and chose compositions inspired by photographs they took.
The girls have studied from many completed canvasses by retired Imperial Valley College art teacher Juanita Lowe, who donated the works of art to Cowne, her former student and colleague.
Twenty-four Art II students studied this year under Cowne and many others will be exhibiting in the show. These students have studied line, texture and tone specifically using graphite, colored pencil and charcoal. For the most part their contribution will consist of large 18 by 24 inch graphite drawings of still life compositions set up in their room by both former art instructor Jonathan Archer, who now heads the graphic arts department at BUHS, and Cowne.
